Hey all! Just purchased these from a local auction and was hoping I could get some terminology on what these are and what they were used for. Still learning so any info is appreciated. Thanks!

Most look like quarry blanks to me. In the first picture there is one (top row, third from the left) that looks like it could have some use polish on the end and might have been used as an adz.

Those are cache blades. The Natives would bury those together, dig them up when needed to make knives and spear points out of them. They buried them so they wouldn't be stolen or lost.
