Rare clear quartz tool finds

Unbelievable quartz pieces brought to our attention by Bruce Cox of North Carolina. Bruce says 'A boy, Travis, had found the first piece and  alerted me to the site, where i found the second very similar worked piece'.

These are some amazing pieces, and ceremonial use may enter ones mind as the uses for these very bling tools, on the other hand the second piece appears broken as though used, so maybe the use of the material is more a practical one?. The first piece stands 3 1/8 inches tall, the second 2 inches tall.
