Actually it is. Dolomite attached to the edge of a stone version of the seen device enables the same results on Obsidian. It's how the Egyptians cut their stones 6000 years ago. There, we find a lot of dolomite tools.edit on 22-12-2011 by Gorman91 because: (no reason given)

wait, weren't we monkeys 10,000 years ago according to evolutionists.
all humans could do back then was grunt and throw stones.

I am sure you realize just how difficult it would be actually to create something like that
10k years ago. Obsidian has a tendancy to fracture. Hence the razor sharp edges.
It is very glasslike and has a hardness of 5- 5.5.
In fact, It would be a great contest to see this reproduced today without using ANY electrically
Is it possible, well obviously as this specimen exists.
Amazing what people can do without T.V.,Computers, and all the other current distractions
of our current era on the human timeline.
We should be careful to make sure it is not fraudulent.
It wouldn't be the first time.
I wonder if it would fit me? S&F

It might be like having a keyboard and no computer. So then people say "What good is this keyboard? You just THINK it does something, it is not a real machine because it does not produce anything!' Add in a helping of a religion saying "keyboards are from the devil"
Pretty soon you might end up with an engraved plank that a few people just KNOW there's something too if they can only figure it out, and everyone else laughs at them.

That is gasket not a bracelet.

As in eighty thousand years ago??

Now think about it.... 10,000 years ago....
Some amazing tech was applied to the analysis of this artifact - and frankly... the results are stunning!
This process has revealed that the bracelet was made using highly specialized manufacturing techniques. The analyses carried out showed that the bracelet was almost perfectly regular. The symmetry of the central annular ridge is extremely precise, to the nearest degree and nearest hundred micrometers. This suggests that the artisans of the time used models to control its shape when it was being made. The surface finish of the bracelet (which is very regular, resembling a mirror) required the use of complex polishing techniques capable of obtaining a nanometer-scale surface quality worthy of today's telescope lenses.
Imagine the possibility - that despite what we have been generally told by mainstream archeology - there may have been a time long ago when our predecessors were much more technically apt than we imagined. Unless I am completely off-base here, nanometer-scale precision took "modern man" some 5 or 6,000 years to achieve.
Granted, I am no craftsman to judge ancient man's capabilities. But I distinctly recall being taught that it took us a quite a long time to manage developing the wheel and bow.... let alone worrying about precision like that.
Wish I had more time to write... but I think you all may have some interesting input to add..... so, get to it!
