This basalt flake is from the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales. The Anaiwan People rescued the artefact from development (Kermit Site 21-1-0192, Artefact 03) then returned the artefact back to country after the 3D model was made.
This medium-sized flake was struck from a cobble of moderately coarse-grained basalt. Rounded cobbles of basalt outcropped in the vicinity. Basalt was used to make edge-ground axes in the region, but no clear evidence for axe manufacture was discovered at the site. It may have been struck from a locally-available stone for use as an expedient cutting tool.
