We made some guesses but in the end weren't confident enough to say what the gemstone was. So unless a reader can help out, all we can say is - it is a quartz!
Most of the common gemstones used in jewelry making fall under this umbrella - amethyst, agate, jasper, carnelian, tiger eye, onyx, jasper and citrine as well as the obvious rose quartz, rutilated quartz and smokey quartz.. A useful thing to know when you cannot identify a gemstone.
Sue really liked the larger holed metal rondelles which kind of flopped around the head pin. So she strung some seed beads which fitted inside the rondelles and served to keep the head pins in a central position.
