Unfortunately, i don't have much more detail about the rocks. I just need a general idea of what it might be or it's composition, if possible. Thanks

Please try to check some more properties of your sample as explained here: Asking: "What is this? / Where is it from?". Thanks.

Dear donjones,

I will just second the comment, that you need to read and try to respond to the "Asking What is This..." advice on the Forum guidance pages.

For rock samples such as what you've shown--aside from any physical properties, it is really important for you to include something about where or how the samples were found--did you find them "right where you live" (and to tell us, where exactly in the world that is), or "in the mountains" (again, where?), or someone gave them to you, or what. "What kind of a geological context were they found in" is an important thing to know--i.e., just in the soil? at an ocean or river beach? at an old mine site? or just "in the hills".

Some rocks are very easy to identify (with moderate certainty) just on sight; these two picture you have sent, don't give any immediate clues--could be "anything", without some further information. Though the second one, the bluish one, looks more like a piece of glass, that anything else. Scrap pieces of colorful "slag glass" are often found--scrap material from glassworks-- that people think may be a natural rock, but are not.

Sincerely, Pete
