I have shown these items on another thread and had suggestions proberbly correct, but would just like a final opinion before i record them on my blog please. first three i agree with earlier advice looks to be hemetite, but the streak from the centre seems orange ?
Plus what caused the square shape and shiny surface? More in next post.

This piece shown first in the last image of the last post (1260) is i think mudstone? but again what caused the deep greasy shine?

The first two in this post ( 1264- 001)- ( 1264- 002) i think is graphite its heavy for its size, and has a gray silver streak, and dose show the streak on paper.

The two images attached to this post appear to be chalcedony.
