These look like two 5 grainers and two 3or4 grainers..... Your largest cut stones would yield 35 points to 55 points each - depending. Cost for this kind of rough ranges between 275 to 525 a carat USD... so you did well from that respect (depends on the quality)..

I would forget about cutting them - keep 'em, and make them into "rough" Jewelery or as conversation pieces.

We agree... Seems like they would be more unique as the focal point of a piece of jewelry that serves to keep the story alive...

Hey Furthermore,

I'd be glad to pay you double for that little piece. You just ship it to me first for inspection and I'll send you the money.
