The bottom two look like they could be platinum, though platinum nuggets are really rare. They could also be slag. Where did you find them? Perhaps this will be an indicator. Also what color is the streak, and are they exceptionally heavy for their size?

That's odd as most metals are heavy, and this material certainly looks metallic. Can you test if it conducts electricity?
