Item: HS257    *NEW*      Miniature Reed Drilled Bead  
Description: Limonite Bead - This Limonite Bead was found on the Fred Lawson Farm, at the confluence of the Cumberland River and Flat Creek, Knox County by Don McKeehan.  It has exfoliated some, but still retains it's integrity.  This little piece was an eye-opener and a myth buster for me.  FOR those who have said that any cylindrical hole in an artifact of diameter less than 3/8ths or 7/16ths or so is suspect, this piece was being reed drilled ( drilled with hollow cane packed with sand) and the hole diameter is 7/64 ths of an inch.  Allowing for tolerances from the sand, the cane used here was around 3/16 ths of an inch in diameter.  The "nipple" is about the size of a pencil lead!  This piece, Jewdy loved, so I am retiring it to her personal collection but I wanted to post it for everyone for educational purposes!  Jewdy Pennington Collection
