I need some help with this one. It's odd. Maybe a carving almost looks petrified though

I found this little guys or guys the other day and didn't think anything of it at first but then as a got home and washed it off I could see what looked to be like an ape face and on the other side like a bird or something with a crown. So I went ahead and got a little color pencil and went over the high spots of it so it's easier to see see what y'all think

Your green and pink rock is called unakite. The green is epidote and the pink is granite.

Unakite, when solid and free of both pitting and fractures, can be very attractive when properly cut and polished.

As to the item in pics 4 and 5, too many candidates to count.

Time for more coffee
