The green one has what appears to be a weed of some sort embedded in it.

Aer there whole bunches of them

Or were there only these two?

Have you been digging?

If not, maybe you should start since those are some right purty rocks!

They look somewhat like the insides of a geode. If you have some big behind, ugly round rocks. That would be what's inside.

Pure speculation. wait for someone here that knows what they are talking about.

Tourmaline or some other semi-precious stone. In other words it looks cool but isn't worth anything.

Well, those fragments could be old glass of some kind; but, the photos sure look like some form of jade to me.

Looks like diamond indicator strata. Usually there will be diamonds 45' 6" directly below where the strata is found. If you dig fifty feet and still haven't found anything, I'm probably wrong.

Yes, and OP-
If there is a mosquito trapped inside, let me know. I have an idea that could make us rich.
