About this patina:
The flint is grey inside, and was gray when it was made 5600 years ago.
Many years in the soil with Sulfur and Tannins in acid moor soil, turned the surface beige/brown.
When the environment got flushed by seawater (near the cost-line)
the white slight blue surface occur. and the brown turned little red, almost pink!
One side was covered/protected with clay. the unprotected surface became more and more white after many hundred years by the seawater, but still glossy.
. -Not even Picasso could do that better.
Look pictures both with blitz and in Sunlight.
Very low reserve
