Polishing removes identifying characteristics. All we have to go on is color.

I was afraid of that. I purchased these in a boxed set which did not come labeled. I had a few guesses.  Rose quartz, citrine,and  aventurine. Those were based just off of color. Any ideas?
Red could be red coral. Green could be adventurine. White could be Quartz. I am going to check yellow and the butterscotch colored one. Okay so best shot on butterscotch colored one is yellow Jasper and the bright yellow lemon colored one citrine Jade.
Thank you so much!  I really appreciate it.  :)
