Hi,
Calcite will give off bubbles with acid (brick cleaner or strong vinegar). The rest looks like glass, quartz pebbles and the fish head is furnace slag, burnt limestone with gas bubble holes and a chunk of green/grey glassy slag stuck in it.

Thankyou I've learnt something new I didn't now about the bubbles 👍
