It looks like the ore of lead and zinc. The shiny grey crystals are galena (lead) and the green crystals are sphalerite (zinc). The tiny white crystals are calcite.

All of your rocks look to be the same stuff. Some more crystalized than the others.

Need pictures that are in focus.  Based on these photos, the sample looks like either an Actinolite (metamorphic rock) or maybe a Peridotite (intrusive igneous).

All that rust has me thinking it’s an iron bearing rock of some sort.

With the new photos I'm very confident that it the predominate mineral is Epodoite and the rock type is an Actinolite (metamorphic rock type).
