Absolutely!
I guess the blue one is sodalite.
You should provide a larger and better photo of the third one, I think then we will have a good chance to determine what it is ...

I saved the unidentified specimen in the upper right corner, then made it much larger on the screen via photoshop. It looks like quartz on albite/feldspar with ?

The piece top right looks like Quartz with Schorl (black tourmaline) and probably albite feldspar, most likely from Pakistan.
