1 = a rock, maybe igneous or metamorphic?
2 = petrified wood, Arizona
3 = petrified wood (with sawn side), Arizona
4 = a rock maybe sedimentary?
4 = maybe a piece of quartz, other white rocks cannot be ruled out.

Despite my giving ID opinions on the photos, I have a personal aversion to these type postings. Interested novices should be doing more on their own prior to posting multiple very different examples without any info. Enthusiastic novices should first get a basic book on geology, rocks and minerals and also look to join a local club to learn from more experienced folks with similar interests. Only then post a specific unidentified example.

My opinion. BOB

In San Diego you have two clubs that are very active. The San Diego Mineral and Gem Society located in Balboa Park and Fallbrook Gem and Mineral Society in downtown Fallbrook. Both have a website and Facebook pages.

You really haven’t made any effort to pretend you’ve read any rules, especially the thread on posting “what is it” threads. You’re only wasting your time and everyone elses by creating useless threads. If you wont make an effort why expect others to use their time and knowledge for your benefit?
