    Well, there's quartz and host rock in there. Also fragments. Hard to give a name to that rock in general.

    That's a rock. No, take a hammer to it and chip an edge. Looks water worn, which hides some clues helpful to ID.

    Look like they belong in the cubic crystal system. You did well to collect them!
    Could be garnets. (only thing I can think of right now) If so - a knife won't scratch them.

    But I advise to go to a local university or lapidary club for a second opinion.

    Found in central utah. I'm assuming quite a bit of pyrite?
    Quite a bit of pyrite indeed. I'd keep an eye out for gold.

    The colors are due to secondary copper minerals forming from oxidization. Neat!

    Could be one of several things. Amphibole, pyroxene & tourmaline is what I can think of right now. Neat find!

    So those flakes aren't gold or its not a rare meteorite from a golden planet far far away and I shouldn't quit my job and sail around the world. Lol.
