I agree that the white specimen is quartz and the other appears to be a garnetiferous mica schist
Looks like iron stained quartz in post #2 and then what appears to be a Porphyritic granite w/ pink feldspar.

Please note that this platform is called "gemology online", perhaps you queries would be better addressed with the Mineral Identification Key
http://www.minsocam.org/msa/collectors_ ... _keyi1.htm

and
The Rock Identification Key
http://www.minsocam.org/msa/collectors_ ... ck_key.htm

Cheers.

Best use for these kinds of rocks is "slingshot" ammo....

with the exception of the probable meteorite, I agree with Ibwana.

Have you tried using the links I posted earlier? :smt112
None of your specimens are gems.

I still think that IMG_20200908_222652.jpg is a likely meteorite.

Look at the photo closely. The base material where it is broken is translucent white - never heard of a quartz or chalcedony meteorite!

Most likely some type of slag, based on the smooth rounded glaze.

:D

yes - I think you are right. If those are translucent bits, it isn't a meteorite.
