I like the green one. Is it quartz or a emerald?

The larger piece is quartz. It's a very pretty color. The second is chrysoprase, I believe. I have found several pieces of this same rock in the same location. I don't believe quartz is as smooth and transparent...and it is not an emerald.

I think the green is actualy beach glass. Heavily frosted. I search for these to make jewelry. Beautiful!

I was also thinking beach glass on the first photo but the other photos have inclusions that I don't think that you would ever see in manufactured glass that is a cool find thanks for the photos
