38 Sahara desert found Neolithic, Meolithic, and Paleolithic Tools

Neolithic: This group of 36 Sahara Neolithic relics is composed of diverse types of relics, which were discovered on ancient habitation sites deep in the western Sahara desert, mostly in the vicinity of northern Muaratania/Mali but also includes two basally notched Eiffel Tower/Tidikelt points from Algeria. This group consist of several types and subtypes of projectile points from varying periods of the Neolithic era, including ovate, stemmed, triangular, and unifacial tool forms. In all there are 25 stone projectile points and tools, 10 hard-stone beads (mostly quartz disc beads), one clay bead which has wear/damage to both end, one hardstone celt, and a nice, complete cylindrical quartz labret with rounded ends, this relic is thought to be used in body piercing or lips or ears.

Mesolithic: There is one unifacial blade seen at the bottom left from era Morocco, probably dates to approximately 8,000 years Before Present.

Paleolithic: An Aterian point is included in this collection, seen in the upper right. I believe this to be a hafted knife/scrapper rather than a projectile point. It is Aterain form with thick stem and rounded or abrupt tip which is worked to use for cutting or scrapping not as a tip for a projectile. This artifact dates to to approximatley 30,000 years Before Present, at the time of the extiction of Neanderthal Man, but probably made by early Homo Sapien Sapien.
This is one of the more diverse offering of Sahara relics you will find.
The smallest point is 11/16th inch (18 mm) long.
The largest tool is 2 1/4th inches (57 mm) long.
The celt is 1 7/16th inches (38 mm) long, heel to bit. It has one small modern nick to the bit area.
