Help please! ID rocks/crystals?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Other than what you'd call common findings, I have absolutely no knowledge of rocks/minerals/fossils! I would really like some help with what types of rocks/crystals these are (see photos).

I presume the purplish coloured one is amethyst? Though its coloration and crystal size made me think otherwise.

Would really appreciate the IDs of each of these.

Thanks very much!

Hi Alexander, welcome to the forum!

Be patient and someone will be able to help you with possibles IDs of your specimens, I would attempt to give an ID on some of them but I'm not the best with such rocks, show me some gold and I'll give you a yes or no!! :4chsmu1:

Give us a general location of where they were found and it will help somewhat on finding out what type of geology and mineral the area has.
