Please help in identifying 5 tumbled stones?

0 votes

I received these stones as a gift and I have no idea what they are. Pictures and Descriptions included!

 #1 An opaque reddish/brown stone with very small black/brown specks.

 #2 A translucent/shiny light orange stone with a pretty consistent color all the way through. (Already checked, not orange calcite/fluorite. Sort of looks like carnelian, but very orange instead of red.)

 #3 A shiny opaque light yellow to orange to pinkish red stone. The color transition is very beautiful and smooth, and kind of reminds me of strawberry lemonade :P

  #4 As you can tell by the reflection of the blinds/my phone, a very shiny opaque deep green stone. No significant markings on it, and the deep green color is flawless all the way around. Maybe a dyed stone?

 #5 Green opaque stone, not quite as deep of a green color as #4, has a lighter, almost yellowy marking across it (two more circular markings of the same color on back, not shown)

I'd say 4 and 5 are jade...might possibly be polished malachite but more likely jade.

Number 2 might be citrine.

Number one might be jasper

Number 3 might be quartz.
