I'd say the red is garnet, the black... tourmaline, the orangish rock... feldspar, the white rock...quartz. I wouldn't go so far to say it's a pegmatite.

You can probably find this by the ton at the source, wherever that is.

If you have the equipment to make your own coaster, go ahead and try it. I can't vouch for the aesthetics though. Post a picture here if you do make some.  I'd like to see how they turn out.

Pretty rock, reminds me off a blueberry muffin. Coaster's excellent idea.
