Flint Ridge Events in 2010

Several people have ask me recently if I have contact info for Nether's far, I do not.

I did find there are a couple events happening at Flint Ridge Ohio.

Field trip to Flint Ridge Ohio during Labor Day weekend September 1-3. This is a trip that should appeal to both the mineral and lapidary people since the flint beds often contain vugs lined with quartz crystals and sometimes have barite and calcite crystals. The Flint Ridge flint is well known for its lapidary qualities and is the state gem of Ohio. I have chosen Labor Day weekend for this trip because the Flint Ridge Lithographic Society is sponsoring a large flint knapping show at the Flint Ridge Park and Museum. This event attracts master flint knappers from all over the country who will be demonstrating their ancient art of making flint arrow and spear points and other tools. Admission to the flint knapping event at the park is $5.00 per vehicle and museum admission is included. The hours for this event are 10am-5pm on Sept. 1-2.
