I live in Pennsylvania. To confirm your stones cheaply, you can test for specific gravity. It won’t totally identify them, but can narrow your list of possibles. You’ll need the host rock removed and a digital scale.

You may want to check with some of your local rock shops for used equipment, or some may even offer classes for cutting.
