Or were there only these two?

Have you been digging?

If not, maybe you should start since those are some right purty rocks!

They look somewhat like the insides of a geode. If you have some big behind, ugly round rocks. That would be what's inside.

Pure speculation. wait for someone here that knows what they are talking about.

Tourmaline or some other semi-precious stone. In other words it looks cool but isn't worth anything.

Well, those fragments could be old glass of some kind; but, the photos sure look like some form of jade to me.

Raw amber has a noticable smell. Can you smell anything other than outdoors on the rock? Does amber come in colors other than...amber?

Looks like diamond indicator strata. Usually there will be diamonds 45' 6" directly below where the strata is found. If you dig fifty feet and still haven't found anything, I'm probably wrong.

Yes, and OP-
If there is a mosquito trapped inside, let me know. I have an idea that could make us rich.

Actually Arkansas has, so far as I know, the only diamond mine in the lower 48. Keep digging. Maybe it will soon have the only TWO...

Home to the only diamond mine in the U.S. if I'm not mistaken?

They're obviously not diamonds but "semi precious" does'nt sound worthless to me.

My bet is slag glass like you see along the highway gift shops on the way to Hot Springs. Especially since you are in Arkansas.

My first thought was obsidian. I have some of the common black, and others that are clear as glass with black streaks running through. I have read that it can come in a variety of colors, depending on impurities. Here is the first reference to green I could find lol:

There is a diamond "park" where anyone can go dig for diamonds and keep whatever you find.It's on my "things to do list".

Don't care what they are. They are gorgeous and would make some nice rings, earrings or pendants. Cut them up and polish them.

Well. I know amber can be green. And I know amber is fossilized tree and bush resin......

Other than that. Nothing.

In the third picture, it looks ike there are bubbles. That to me, seems to indicate either volcanic activity or its man made. I think I used to have some chunks of decorative aquarium glass that looked alot like that. Was there an old marble factory or something around you?

My wealth of knowledge is based on a few geology classes in community college close to thirty years ago, so, don't make any decisions based my ideas. They are very pretty though.

I showed these pics to my father, who is a retired earth science teacher. he said he couldn't be 100% sure without holding both and inspecting in person. But he is 90% sure of what they are anyway.

He says the green ones are probably apitite, if they aren't glass. And the clear-ish ones are probably quartz. It's possible given your location that they could be diamonds, but if they are as large in size as the pics make them seem, then it's more than likely quartz.
