Thanks again all for the welcome, I'm a little overwhelmed!

I'll pull up a chair and put the kettle on...

Oh! Before I forget, I found a few pics I took a while ago of those rocks from India I was talking about earlier. The Amethyst is easy and I'm reasonably sure the largest one is some form of Quartz but the rest I don't know. I don't have any of my chemical analysis equipment any more so I can't test them myself.

If anyone recognises them let me know.

P.S. I realise I may be taking liberties by posting these images in this thread knowing you have a section for minerals, so if any Admins are watching, please feel free to move this post to its appropriate place!

Hi Stevestones about time there were a few more of us brits on here!
Im up in Yorkshire but do get down to my sisters in Topsham Devon a few times a year. Would move there if I could afford it, but since Jonny Dep moved into the town its way out of my price.
The clear mineral looks like Apophyllite, very common from India, to be sure the points will all have a line where the tip meets the main crystal, I have some nice green Apophyllite in my shop, quite a bit more rare.
Enjoy it on here, a good bunch of rock obsessed people.

Thanks urbtaf, when I get time I'll take them somewhere to get checked out. I can't imagine any of them are valuable but they'll be OK for paperweights or desk ornaments.

We have a few rock stars where we are that push up the house prices. Their kids are often the worst!
