Oh! Looks like you edited your first post. The one I think is Rhodacrosite is what came from the link you gave earlier.

How to identify it from a moving list is difficult!

I hope that is easier to see now. I still don't know which picture you mean.

The first one looks like Rhodacrosite to me, but the others aren't easy to identify. A few look like very clear rose quartz and the rest I'm stumped with.

3. sardonyx (orange banded)
4. rose quartz (pink)

if you could post pictures one and one istead of a moving list it would be easier to help you

2. looks like Rhodochrosite

5. could be a manmade stone.

I am not sure what the problem is with my photo account as from this end of the internet each image is showing up as seperate.
I am unsure of what is happening to the links. I really don't know how to fix the error.
Thank you for taking the time to view and name them. Eventhough, they are hard to view.

The photo you titled "beauty" looks to me like a very nice piece of sunstone. I have one like it, but mine is golden-yellow with portions of pink. Yours looks like it is made up entirely of the pink portions.

The photo you titled "purps" looks like Lepidolite to me -- it is a type of mica and contains a lot of lithium. "noidead" may be the same because Lepidolite forms in different structures: masses (noidead) and scales (purps).

I love this stone for calming and balancing.

The one named noidea didn't photograph well, it is a mixture of grey/white/violet and pink. I found it a very intersting piece the grey looks like flashes of lightening when you see it up close.
Purps is very sparkly and the picture doesn't do it any justice. I really want to look for other pieces similar.
I think its a very strong possibility they are Lepidolite. I need to look into the healing uses. I do feel much more settled since using the crystals. I fell asleep holding the purps piece and had a great nights sleep yet felt groggy today.
I think I need to use it in moderation. I do feel drawn to purple at the moment. I have no idea as to why.

Thank you BrightBrook

1 & 2 look like Rhodocrosite

Dunno about 3, maybe a banded agate?

4 & 6 look like Rose Quartz

8 looks like Sunstone

9 looks like Lepidolite

the purple shards in the slideshow are definitely Amethyst

The stone on the pendant looks like rose quartz and the one in pic number nine looks quite like citrine, it can be in varying shades of oranges and ochres etc .... That's just my thoughts anyway : )
