Damn, I'll have to try every stone with even the furthest possibility to be the stone in question! I'll return soon, have to fetch the laundry, guesses for now:

4. Sillimanite
7. Amblygonite

Wow, I step away for an hour and the guesses piled up!

4) Sillimantie - No
7) Amblygonite - No

4) Kunzite - No

4) Scapolite - No

4) Spinel - No
7) Amber - No

I actually like the Amber and Amblygonite guesses on #7, even though they're wrong.
