Here's the most interesting (in my opinion) of the rocks I'm trying to identify.  I have been told that they were all collected in or around North Dakota; and the collection is "many years" old.

I'd call that prairie agate.  Some years ago we filled the truck with them for the rock garden.  Left them behind when I retired.
