That's an interesting one. Beats me. The red/orange ones look like agate, but … ?

Are those little blue opals in the big bottom piece?

If they were opals they'd have that 'opalescent' quality that always reminds me of flowing water. That one can be tough to capture on film.

I'd expect different colours, but the sheen almost looks like ammolite. If so, it's a real find. It does look tough to take a picture of that sheen.

Hi! I am new here and was hoping you could help me identify some crystals I’ve recently inherited. My grandmother was an avid crystal and gemstone collector, and when she passed she left me her collection. I learned a lot from her before she passed and I was able to identify many of them, but these I am not 100% sure of. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Nice pieces - so great when they are handed down. We've got a couple of people who are good at identification, and they should be along soon.

I'm going to have to bow out of rock-id service for a while. Happy to relinquish my spot to others with a keener eye than mine. <3

In that first photo I think I see some pyrite in that dark green rock to the left. The light green one at the top could be jade or agate.
In the next photo the lavender one toward the bottom reminds me of the glow that chalcedony can get. The chunky yellow pieces also remind me of something though I can't place it.
The third photo has what looks like a piece of shiny peacock ore to the right though I'd expect to possibly see some purples and/or greens; not just blue.
I wonder if your next piece has fluorite. I think I see cubic shapes there that fluorite makes.
Could be garnet on the dark rock that is next. Hard to tell in the light.
Left to right in your last pick I'd guess sodalite and agate. Not sure about that green shaded one.

I hope that gives you at least a start.

My first thought was that this is a big beauuuutiful piece of blue calcite., though that very blue shade in your first pic could perhaps be angelite too, like One65 mentioned.

Wow, even more beautiful. And such a large piece!
You are in luck.
