I don't know much about these stones also skeptical as they are of any worth but guys from other states come here to collect truck load of these as they are found in many places in my area and export it to city where gemstones are made. The stone pictures I have attached here are collected from my land and someone has suggested me to start mining that piece of land. Plz enlighten me as what these stones might be. If pics are unclear or small as I have combine two in one plz notify me I'll provide clearer image.

Mostly agates, chalcedony, jasper and druzy quartz. Depending on the patterns in the agate, etc. they can make nice cabs. They sell by the pound though.

i have to learn about these classification and how to identify them as I'm clueless which stone is what? and what their price might be and where to sell. These are collected in quintals or in tons in my area though. Not sure sold in pound or quintal.
