Does anybody know what these rocks are?

I found them in the same place in Crete. I don't know much about minerals, but the hardness must be over 6 because I tried to scratch with everything I have at home and it didn't scratch.

  • $\begingroup$ The left one is clearly quartz. The right one is also likely to be quartz, just with some impurities that make it green at some spots. $\endgroup$ – Gimelist Nov 1 '17 at 21:30

Quartz / quartzite pebbles. The green in the right pebble could be chlorite or epidote.
