They're garnets, a group of minerals that has several different species: https://www.mindat.org/min-10272.html
Yours are most likely the species almandine, with some pyrope and spessartine mixed in (Garnets are rarely just one pure species).

I do agree with Alfredo, those reddish spots are highly weathered garnets. The rock, as a whole, resemble a garnet bearing amphibolite.
