Hi,

 

Can anyone help identify these gemstones. I purchased them as part a mixture of gemstones and have struggled with identifying these ones?

looks like chrysoprase, (aka Madagascar green opal) they are a type of chalcedony colored green by nickle. Darker varieties are just call prase. You can better confirm this by doing a scratch test on some porcelin (it should have a hardness of around 7).
