It is somewhat difficult to identify submissions by pictures alone, especially when little or no information is provided. Please read the following and perhaps someone can help you when we know more about the specimens. http://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=19487#19487.

Hi to everybody!
A personal opinion: serpentinite after peridotite. It's a very common rock in the Balkans as well as everywhere there was a formerly volcanic area.

Hi, thanks for the suggestion, it could take some time to better manage my posts.
Here is a mineral which I mentioned is from Bulgaria. near Sofia - 42°41'51.04" N 23°19'26.94" E.
Mineral looks a bit of dark purple - massive part, olivine green - other part.
no transparency, no shine.
Thanks again.
