Not sure what these are exactly, my mother has had most of these for a long time and i had the stone(axe?maul?) given to me by my late uncle. Any help figuring out what they are and if they are worth anything would be greatly appreciated. Please and thankyou in advance and thanks for your time.

The one with the Bic lighter is definitely a stone ax head.

The others I don't think are artifacts, just natural. Just my opinion, of course.

I agree. But I wouldn’t say, stone axe. I a would say net weight. On the west coast that would be my guess

If it was worn by nature wouldnt it have a smooth even surface? Also the eyes are perfectly spaced on the "face" i dont know that ive ever heard of that in nature but there is a first time for everything.

Not necessarily. Material could have eroded from the "eyes" over time without doing much to the rest if the rest of the material surrounding the eyes was harder. The way our minds work we "look" for patterns in what we see around us, and often find them even in 100% naturally occurring shapes.

Try the Native American forum or take them to an expert there are many knowledgable people on these forums but having them in hand in front of you is much better for authentication
