A quality arrowhead is made from authentic and non industrial raw materials. It is added to the end of an arrow, and shot from a bow, and is used as a hunting weapon. Original arrowheads have the original qualities of ancient artifacts which were made from purely natural materials only. These heads are available in a variety of styles, shapes, colors and sizes.
Examples of commonly sought after striking tips are the tomahawk heads which are originally from India. These heads are found in many online stores and they come in lengths ranging from 4 to 8 inches. These heads are designed in symmetrical shapes and some occasionally have notches on the sides. These native Indian pointed heads are quite popular among collectors because they hold a very important cultural value. Native Americans also made such heads and used them for hunting.

Striking tips are sold as collections and each collection has a number of pieces ranging from 10 to 50 pieces per set.
The price of arrowheads depends on the number of pieces in a set as well as the size of the heads. Some heads are handcrafted and are given special stone coloring and this increases their value.
