Please help me identify some of my favourite new rocks that I have found


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I am new here, so I am sorry if I am not doing this right. I live in Mpumalanga, South Africa and I have been collecting rocks since I could close my hands. I have never quite gotten into identifying rocks and minerals though and I would really love to build my knowledge regarding geology/rock and mineral identification. If anyone could please assist me with identifying some of my new favourite rocks, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you if you have read this far and I am sorry for rambling. Also, please let me know if there was a better way for me to do this.

DId all these rocks come from the same location?

The last 2 pictures show a metamorphic rock with garnets.  Pic 10 shows a side with micro quartz crystals with garnets.
