Seeing all of the great posts lately, made me decide to go dig out some of my old finds. Here's a few shots and a few close ups of favorites. Let me know if anything stands out, and if you have any idea on the pottery designs/age as well. Uploaded to Onedrive for better clarity, each link is clickable.

That's a fine collection with some really nice pieces!
 
Very nice collection. I saw a transparent point that was very similar to yours that someone dug up with an auger while putting in fence post. You could drop it in a glass of water and barely see it.

My oldest daughter (21) found that clear point. I have a few quartz points not shown, but nothing like that particular one. Lighting sand strike material from what i can guess.

It's crystal quartz. It is quite easier to knap than milky quartz, and a whole lot more knappable than quartzite. The clearer quartz is, the better knapping material it is.

Here's a Hardaway I made from a semi-clear piece I found in a creek near here:
