Polished rocks, what variety, I don't know, but they don't look like a particular form of precious or semi-precious gemstone to me. I like the caramel colored bits but the rest is unremarkable from a mineral standpoint.

Some kind of aragonite or calcite I would say. And if it is harder (like glass for example), than it could be agate or jasper.
