Discussion Flint (or flintstone) is usually dark-grey, blue, black, or deep brown in color. It occurs chiefly as nodules and masses in sedimentary rocks, such as chalks and limestones. A type of quartz, this material was one of the most commonly used materials for the manufacture of stone tools during the Stone Age, as it splits into thin, sharp splinters called flakes or blades (depending in the shape) when struck by another hard object (such as a hammerstone made of another material). It remained an essential mineral resource for making fire. However, a later related major use was to create the spark that would ignite the powder that would fire a ball or bullet from a flintlock firearm. Flint mining is attested since the Palaeolithic, but became more common since the Neolithic (Michelsberg culture, Funnelbeaker culture).. It comes in a range of different colors from red, grey, blue to black with white bands. Traditionally flint stone is a stone for strength and healing...
