Alright, these are from an area I frequent. I get all sorts of different kinds depending on how high or low I search. I’ve taken some to a professor around me and he said the red material is hematite. I’ll add them in the comments

This is a complete crystal specimen. Is there any way to tell species or at least close to?

I think we are looking at Liesegang zones, from minerals penetrating cracks in porous rock. The orange-red is probably Iron oxides migrating.
