The first 3 appear to be demantoid garnet, which Iran is famous for. Demantoid is a variety of the calcium-iron garnet andradite.

The first 2 garnets you posted in another, now locked thread, offering to sell them. This time you post without any description, size, locality, etc. So, what is your point in posting them?

This is not a commercial forum, so nobody here will likely discuss specific values.

That said, the first 2 garnets are badly damaged. The 3rd garnet looks to be in generally good condition. Condition, rarity, desirability all have an effect on value of mineral specimens. Broken crystals may have some lapidary of jewelry value, depending on the type of material. You also need to be precise on localities - are these from Kerman or from West Azarbaijan? (probably the second locality, but guessing is not of value).

The last specimen is unknown. It might be gold, or something rare or something common. Value is also dependent on a proper identification, as well as condition, rarity, and desirability. You should find someone who can hold the specimen, examine it and identify it for you. This particular specimen will be very difficult to identify from photos.
