Is it a fulgurite?

Doreen of Roseburg, Oregon  found these interesting pieces June 18, while agate hunting on the Oregon coast.  The long sandy piece looks like either a fulgurite, meaning thunderbolt formed in sand.  If not maybe it could possibly be an Indian artifact as it has a hollow area on the small end for an arrow? The two specimens above are a couple of very interesting agates. The smallest one is an agatized snail.
