Identify clear yellow stones-milky white coating

Not sure what I'm doing. I posted two pictures on the Photo Gallery for identification.

One photo is of 3 transparent, yellow stones with milky white coatings. They have a quartz-like appearance, aside from the white coating. These stones were found in GA in a region which is loaded with quartz. The area is positioned at the base of a draw/saddle, which makes up the first hill of a series of 5, within a ridge; if it helps.

My jargon is the neophyte product of being the daughter of an engineer. Please forgive my lack of geological terminology.

I also posted a picture of a large butter colored rock with a slight imprint in one end and a folded appearance at the other. It has more of a milk-quartz appearance and, while seeming opaque, is somewhat transparent when shining a light upon it. It was found beside a small river which runs along a valley, in the NC mountains.

Please advise me on how to get help identifying these rocks.

Thanks.
