Prehistoric cave peoples have been documented as using very rudimentary tools throughout the course of their lives. This is something that has been documented throughout generations of archaeological studies. However, some crystal tools from this era have been found in Spain recently, and it has turned the archaeological world upside down.
At this Spanish site, various crystal arrowheads have been found as well as other weapons that were crafted out of the same material. These have been dated back to roughly the third millennium BCE. Archaeologists have determined that the area of this dig could have also been the area of an ancient altar in which people sacrificed to the gods.
Various other items were found during this dig as well such as amber beads and undecorated elephant tusks, but the most astonishing item that was found were these crystal made weapons. To this day, mankind is fascinated with anything that is structured out of crystal. The findings at this site only perpetuate our fascination even further as it is quite fascinating that people were able to craft such finely made weapons during that era.
There certainly had to be a reason why these peoples chose crystal over the flint and rocks that were found in that region. Perhaps it was due to their knowledge that these crystal crafted weapons could last longer, or maybe these people were smart enough to develop a system of trade amongst the various tribes that inhabited that region during the third millennium BCE.
It is astonishing to think of how developed and civilized these peoples could have potentially been in their choices for what they crafted weapons out of, how they carefully chose the material that went into the construction of these items. Surely, they could have protected themselves as well as went hunting with items that were crafted from rocks, but there must have been a deeper meaning behind their choice for the crystals that were used in these weapons.
