What are these rocks?

Hello there! I recently found these rocks. And I am super curious as to what rocks they are. I would really appreciate the help in identifying them. The first two are different rocks but I'm betting they are the same type of rock.

 

Thank you.

They appear to be quartz based igneous rocks.

They look more like metamorphic rock to Me.

Do not do evaluations here (against the rules).

But-- these rocks are very common and have no uses.

Ohh ok wasn't aware of that. And thank you for the reply. They are still cool to look at so I'll figure something out with them.

I agree with JohnJ in that they seem to be sedimentary and quartz conglomerations. I have found many of these on the side of rivers, people in my area call them chert.

I have used them to make pendants just for fun with the kids, but other than that, they are not valuable or useful for anything specific, they are just cool to look at.
