    The green one has what appears to be a weed of some sort embedded in it, you say?
    May be Amber.

    Raw amber has a noticable smell. Can you smell anything other than outdoors on the rock? Does amber come in colors other than...amber?

    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.

    Open carry would have prevented these rocks.

    My first guess would be amber since you found it under a bush.

    How does finding the 'rocks' under a bush causes you to guess they're amber?

    Actually Arkansas has, so far as I know, the only diamond mine in the lower 48. Keep digging. Maybe it will soon have the only TWO...

    State park near me has the remains of a Civil War era iron-smelting furnace; stuff like that is scattered all over the creek sides.

    Home to the only diamond mine in the U.S. if I'm not mistaken?

    They're obviously not diamonds but "semi precious" does'nt sound worthless to me.

    My bet is slag glass like you see along the highway gift shops on the way to Hot Springs. Especially since you are in Arkansas.
