    Looks like quartz or quartzite, Brenden. The clear  bird point looks like crystal quartz. Welcome to the group! :welcome:

      Looks Like quartz to me also. Don't think they are arrowheads though. Looks more like flakes or debage. Lots of quartz around here and you see lots and lots of plow busted pieces and flakes/debage that look like similar.

        I'm not sure I see points either.  I can't see the edges very clearly,  and I know quartz points
        seem to wear pretty easily, so I can't say for sure.  I just couldn't say they were for sure.

          Yeah those are not points but flaking or failed attempts. I posted those because they are the same rocks as some of the complete points we find. Thanks for the information everyone.
