Aceeppers89, that first one could be honey calcite or a golden quartz . Could even be amber. Lots of possibilities.
Best guess for the second one is tourmaline.
Third could be agate or bloodstone. Again, lots of possibilities
The last one reminds me a bit of stichtite. It's a cool looking stone with a few parts to it.
Lots of possibilities for the first; it's tough here to see the play of light on it.
The second I'd guess is most likely quartz (lots of other possibilities too) with inclusions on the other side which almost certainly include pyrite and the black stone could be galena or hematite perhaps; again, quite a few possibilities.
The third most reminds me of a zeolite cluster. The zeolites, like apophyliite, stilbite etc are used in mining to clean as they have spaces in their geometry which can sequester minerals and pull them out of, say, a solution.
I'm gonna guess orange stilbite with apophyllite (one of my absolute favorite kind of clusters). Stilbite grows in that sort of blade formation. Apophyllite has distinct 4-sided pyramidal tips, and I'm not sure if that's what I'm seeing in the photo. When the tips break off, which is unfortunately very easy to do, they'll usually leave a very flat surface behind. I'm still gazing at it... Dazzling!
This one, I'm more sure is stilbite with apophyllite, in a more classic formation. Do you like how it feels? Have you had any experiences with it?
Oh, those are nice pics!
I think Maryann has answered beautifully. It looks like you have some beautiful zeolite clusters; apophyllite and stilbite (+ ?possibly some heulandite?).
In the last one the pyrite is sparkling so beautifully against its black background. It's quite stunning!
When I research it, it does look like it could stibnite which is a stone I am not personally familiar with. I am reading that it is toxic due to its antimony content so handle with something between yourself and your skin. If anybody does have personal experience with this stone and knows otherwise, please post so that we all know.
I'm also reading that this is a stone which will bring help big transformation, that you would be wise to be completely honest with yourself while using it and that using it with stones like moldavite or selenite would help.
