I do not have any of characteristics information.
I would like to know what your guesses are by the photo. Thank you!

Here are my assumptions, not conclusive in any way. But may help you somewhat.

Yep, my speculation as well. The only one that has me rather baffled is the green one.

Yeah I had some wonder on that one as well, kind of looks like some Green Moss Opal we have, but I wasn't sure if this material was tumbled in the same batch, as you wouldn't typically put opal or Howlite in the same batch as agates.

I think the blue one is tiger eye, not sodalite. It is hard to tell from a still, of course. And not honey jasper, I think it is shell.
The green one could be serpentine, but I dunno.

Prize goes to David....blue tiger-eye looks correct.
I dunno about the shell, jasper call.

The green one needs some real optical testing.

All good guesses.
I'll third that the blue one is probably blue tigereye ('hawkeye')
The green is neat! It reminds me most of hydrogrossular/vesuvianite, though that seems contextually unlikely. A bit too dark in tone for prehnite, too apparently evenly colored for moss agate I think?
