    The largest one on the top is a Knife and may be very old. Run your fingers along the edge and see it is smoother along the base, which would be the section to the left in the picture. If it is smoother on the basal edge than it is on the blade then that means it has been ground and could be a Paleo or very early Archaic Knife and be 11,000 to 12,000 years old. If it's not ground smooth then it's probably a Sedalia and not quite as old but still a very nice piece.

    The two on the left in the middle look to be made of quartz and the top one is a Stemmed Point and the bottom is a Side Notch Point and probably both Archaic.

    The two on the right in the middle are a Tablerock on top, the white one, and small Knife on the bottom.

    The one on the very bottom looks to be a Graham Cave to me.

    You can probably find more info on them on this link.
