You know, I am tempted to say peridot, and I encourage you to have it examined by someone. The structure is out of this world. Take it to a rock shop. I am curious to know geographically where you found it.

Can you tell me if it is magnetic?

I would say peridot or epidote, as that is one of the few minerals with that amazing crystal structure. The pink mineral might be thulite, which grows along epidote sometimes. What an amazing find, I'm green with jealousy!
