Cumberland-type fluted point was the first of six fluted points
recovered from the complex of caves located on lookout Mountain in
Orange County, New York. It's fully fluted on both faces and ground
smooth on the basal edges. The edges are expertly pressure flaked.
Both sides were covered by white lime crust but one side was removed
for photography. This crust is due to the location of the caves in a
formation of dolomitic limestone of the Ordovician period. This
point is made of Kalkberg chert and measures 2 3/8 inches (6 cm)
long and 7/32 inch (5.5 mm) thick.
