The white pearlescent material with yellow fluorescence could be opal.
Not idea about the purple material, sorry.

Anywhere were there is contact between marble and granite there are crystals. In this case they are small and the marble and granite are together. This may be a very silvery Pyrite I'm not sure but its right at the contact zone.

Thanks Jordi,

These are some new finds for today. The first Brown Spinels.
This piece is about 18 cm and has 75 plus Spinels. 7 at or over 13 mm.
Very hard to Photograph, look way better in person.

After breaking up some massive scapolite we found these inside, I think they are Zircons

Hi Glenn
Wow- indeed those do look like graphite spheres. Remarkably nice for their size,
unusual locality, and breaking free of matrix without splitting. Wonderful find!
Best regards,
John

I'm finding these Graphite spheres right at the contact point of calcite and weathered granite mixed in with some nice Pargasite crystals.
