Wondering what these are

I'm thinking either malachite or chrome diopside on the green specimen. Lapis on the blue one.

I second lapis. Just can't tell on the green. Could be what you said, though I was thinking it might also be grossular garnet. There are just too many green minerals, and the picture is just not clear enough.

I saw a sample of Malachite the other day that was an exact duplicate of your green mineral; very nice!  For the blue carving, it is Lapis Lazulite.  clay is also correct since the mineral Sodalite gives Lapis Lazuli (rock name not mineral name) its blue color.   Rounds for everyone!
