Grading and identifying


#1

Hello,
I went on a gem collecting trip and this is what I got, I don’t know what the round stone is, when I tried to research the closest I got was pink dolomite, any information is very welcome, if you have the time I d love to Hear from you if you can identify the other stones.:thinking:

Hello. Look at the Walter Schumann book: Gems of the World. You will easily recognize these gems there (a lot of photos).

Rhodonite maybe? I’ve seen others like that for sale in mineral groups but can’t remember the other names off the top of my head. Is the one more purple than the others or does it just look that way from the angle of the pic?
