    I have never seen malachite that looks like that. Did you blow up the photo on a large screen or are you viewing it through a phone? It has a mottled/ spotted surface among other things.

    Also, I still say the blue is probably sodalite (with all that white in it) not lapis. Can you do a streak test and let us know what color it is.

    I agree, the pink if that's what color it is, could very well be Rhodochrosite.That last one ??.

    Neither. I just checked the thumbnail on my laptop. I usually make but a guess from the thumbnail.
    If I had to study every rock in detail; it would take to long.

    I suppose it could be some sort of imitation of malachite, then.

    Lapis can contain calcite; so I'm sticking with lapis. It fits what I've seen coming out of pakistan/afghanistan the last year.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    Looks like a fragment from a geode/cavity. Made of quartz & chalcedony on the outer rim. (i.e. reddish stuff)

    Looks like a sulphide. Hardness and streak test it. Crush and pan some*; test for gold, or better yet - have an assay made.

    * Don't forget to measure weight of crushed ore vs weight of any recovered gold. It'll give an idea if it's worthwhile. An assay will give you numbers.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    Nope, sorry, no idea. Your best bet is to take it to a professional and have it ID'd in person; only way to know for sure.

    I’m new to this just started the hobby streak test? And a assay ? I crushed some and panned it and it was all the same . Wasn’t much but dirt that separated from it.

    Use the search function on this forum or google; streak test should be easy. As for assay: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metallurgical_assay
    Fire assay is the most commonly used.
