Bead Challenge

A few years back I had purchased these beads and although I'm pretty good at identifying beads, for some reason, these are challenging me. So, I thought I'd ask you.

Now I have a few thoughts on what they are but what do you think? Are they all the same? Help me out and leave a comment with your best guess on what these beads are.

The only info I have on them is that they are semi-precious.

I think they are jaspers. But which kind, I don't know. There are tons of them with sometime quaint names.

I think the square and rectangle is some kind of jasper as well...but the rounds I think might be something else possibly an agate as they don't seem to have the same variegation patterns...but I'm not an expert, just my guess!

Thanks for stopping by Heather! Yes, I do agree with both you and Pearl. I think they are jaspers too and I do question the smaller round ones...they do appear slightly different, just not sure what they are. Thanks for your suggestions.
