Did I find rocks, tektites, or just normal glass?

I'm looking to see if I can get an idea of what kind of rocks (?) I found recently while searching a field in central Virginia for native artifacts. They appear to be glass, 2 of them are dark green similar to moldavite, and the other is clear with a small gray inclusion. While I think the green ones could be man made, what I find intriguing about them is their surfaces are very pitted like they reacted with the local strata while still very hot. I have found other pieces of man-made glass in the field, but none of them resemble the heavy pitting and weathering that these pieces have. The clear one may be the most interesting as it has a globular shape like it was clearly molten at one point. There are also pieces of quartz found in this field, but again, none of them display this exterior surface texture or globular shape, they are much smoother and crystalline. At first I was thinking fulgurite's, but these don't have the shape or texture. As I was researching, the only thing that kept coming back as what would be similar to these are tektites, however, I just can't seem to imagine that's what they are, but maybe? Any ideas as to what these may be?
