Hey everyone!

I was just wondering does anyone know any of the names of these crystals? I know nothing about crystals so I wanted to see if anyone could help haha!

These crystals are from macedonia, my girlfriends dad works in mining!

You can upload more than one picture at a time.

I do not want to click on links I don't recognize from people I don't know, so please post the pictures.

You are also posting on MinDat as 'Mark sing' https://www.mindat.org/mesg-647261.html, so see what they say. On this site we do not encourage users to click on links unless they have been verified by an Admin (we have to take the risk of checking them). You can upload up to 15 photos in a single post:

Hi, all

I have checked the links. They are safe, at least I have not seen anything scary, and my PC let me open them.

Just, that if you try to open posted links, you should erase the space between the last word and dot...

Apart of that, taking a look at photos, first looks to to me as calcite, the orange one could be orpiment, and the red places in rest realgar or any of those thallium minerals some mines in Macedonia are well known...

The quality of photos, at least in my screen are blurry, so hard to tell much more, and not sure at all of what they are really...

Hope it serves.

Lluís

Not for pieces...
Calcite is for first photo, as I said in THIS forum
For rest, I maintain what I said, Just that is a !maybe" in all . Even in first.

And a claim for BETTER photos.. Those are just blurred (also said in Mindat, besides. Not just my eyes/screen)

With best wishes

It's unfortunate that so many people wasted so much time on a post that didn't contain the basic information that we all need in order to help with identifying this stuff.
