More likely the green one is malachite. The white one appears to be moonstone. Quartz that clear would be extremely rare. Ho many sides (facets) does the crystal have.? The specimens appear to have been tumbled, removing some characteristics from the stones which may make them more difficult to identify.

Actually bottom one looks more like aventurine. Red one probably carnelian. Larger crystal is quartz. Top one probably moonstone like weasel mentioned.
