 Hammerstone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In archaeology, a hammerstone is a hard cobble used to strike lithic flakes off a lump of tool stone during the process of lithic reduction.
Often, a hammerstone is made of a material such as limestone or quartzite, is ovoid in shape (to better fit the human hand) and develops telltale battering on the ends.
This technology was of major importance to prehistoric cultures who had yet to learn to work metal; today, however, the use of hammerstones is mostly limited to flintknappers and others who wish to develop a better understanding of how stone tools were made.

“Hammerstone” is the archaeologist’s term for a hand-held stone that shows battering on one or more surfaces, from coming into contact with another hard object: presumably, the harder the object, the heavier the battering.
It was important for the hammerstone to be made of relatively hard material, so that it would not break when striking other objects.
Quartz, quartzite, and basalt make particularly sturdy hammerstones, but these materials are not available in all areas of California, and so stones like chert and sandstone also were used.

 Pecking Hammers   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
This involved hitting the stone with a hammerstone or pecking hammer to crush or crumble a small amount of stone from the potential artifact.
When the stone was struck with a hammer the point of impact resulted in a small "peck mark" where the hammerstone crushed a small area which was removed.
The hammerstone that is used to produce the peck marks during this manufacturing process is termed a pecking hammer.

 Resource Investor - Juniors - Junior Provides Play on Oil Sands - Without the Oil
The company’s focus is the Hammerstone limestone project, located approximately 60 kilometres north of Fort McMurray, from which it plans to produce both aggregate and quicklime (CaO).
Given the benefits of Hammerstone’s size and proximity, Birch Mountain could become a possible target of one of the big oil sands developers, or alternatively, an industrial minerals firm (e.g., a cement company).
Once Hammerstone is fully operational, the steady cash flow would make Birch Mountain a candidate for conversion into an income trust, a high-yielding equity structure that has proved immensely popular among Canadian investors over the past few years.

Hammerstone’s is a great little Soulard bar in any season, but it’s absolutely sublime during the summer months, because the patio is one of the most charming spots in the city to just hang out and have a little food and some beer.
It’s been Hammerstone’s since January of ‘97, when Denny Hammerstone took over what was formerly known as 9th and Russell.
Hammerstone’s advertises itself as “the friendliest bar in town,” and while that’s a tough title to lay sole claim to in St. Louis (especially in Soulard), Hammerstone’s is definitely in the running.

 Birch Mountain expands size and scope of Hammerstone Project
The size of the Hammerstone Project described in the Project Update is larger than contemplated in the original public disclosure document release one year ago, primarily because oil sands construction is now proceeding at an accelerated pace.
The scope of the project has also increased and includes enlarged lime producing facilities with hydrated lime and milk of lime plants, as well as a cement plant and a facility to receive and regenerate spent lime produced in oil sands water treatment.
"The environmental impact assessment for the Hammerstone Project is in preparation and although some additional analysis will be required to address the new facilities, this should not delay filing the application in the spring," he continued.

Hammerstone's best trait is its range; unlike most bars in the area that book the same four blues bands, Hammerstone's has found unique artists that add a little something extra.
The club occasionally hosts a Saturday afternoon hootenanny that's said to be, well, a hoot, and it provides a warm, relaxing courtyard sheltered by trees.
