Quartz Pinella Point

I found this incredible little quartz point while snorkeling a bank in the Edisto river. It was an overcast day so the viso was pretty bad. I almost missed it because its really close to the color of the sand. The workmanship and symmetry are phenomenal. It is literally paper thin on the base. Because its quartz, its also translucent. Check out the photo below when I held it up to a light! I did some research in my Overstreet guide and I think this is a Pinella point.
