Stone Type: Ceramic

Ceramic Retouched ceramic

Clay fired at a high temperature—such as stoneware or porcelain ceramics—behaves in a similar way to chert.  Ceramic fragments from recycled vessels or insulators served as substitute for stone once these high-fired materials became available.  It was retouched by percussion flaking into hand-held tools, or served as blanks for pressure flaking into points and knives.
