Andonites traveled far and wide in search of flint, much as present-day humans journey to the ends of the earth in quest of gold, platinum, and diamonds.  Cro-Magnons worked deposits of flint.  Many of the earlier wars were fought over natural deposits, such as flint, salt, and metals.  The early specialists in industry were the flint flakers and stone masons; next came the smiths.  Even the iron pyrites and flints used in striking fire were held sacred by early mankind.  Primates and Neanderthalers made tools of flint, the latter reaching the levels of Andonites.
