You did not place a reference like a ruler allowing us to guage the size of the stones. They look to be gems.


Here is a specific gravity chart for gems. Red one is in diamond range.

Now you can see the stones with a ruler. More suggestions please. The red stone got lot of traingular pits and also rhombus type of pits too.

It looks more like garnet to me but the SG isn't close. You can PM me. I would like to know in what part of the world you are finding all these gems.
