5" Pickwick Spear Point

This is by far my best Indian relic I have recovered to date. I am amazed at the degree of symmetry along the longitudinal axis; the blade has a centered mass as well. The edges are waved and sharp, and the tip is needle like. I think it is from the Late Archaic era and is made of rhyolite. Any knowledgeable opinions would be appreciated!

Pictures hardly do this artifact justice. The base area appears to have some heat applied to it.
An edge-wise view shows another prospective. It is almost 2" wide at the base and tapers to a point.
