Some rocks in the mines are grey, some are red, some are different shapes? Obviously they are there for the sake of variety, but are some more valuable than others? Are red rocks more likely to drop coal for example? (I am not referencing rocks that have minerals obviously sticking out of them.)

    There's a grey one that always seems to drop stone. That's all I've noticed. – Studoku- Reinstate Monica Mar 12 '16 at 14:35

    The different colours also take a different amount of hits before breaking them, so it is not just for variety. – Andrew Jun 17 '16 at 14:30

The grey rocks only loot normal rock, atleast they do before the last patch, I didn't play enough to secure that in the actually patch do the same. On my mine time, which it is a lot, the different colours rock can give you: rocks, geodes, coal or "normal" ores like copper, gold or metal. Also, the different colours means what type of geodes can you get. On the first levels on the mines you can get "Geode" on the coloured rock and with the red rock on the finals levels can loot you the red geode. As far I played, all the coloured rocks have a chance to also loot Omni Geode. A coloured rocks never can loot minerals but monster or The Quarry, when you "repair" the bridge on the community center, can do. But on the mines, yes, different colours means different loot.

    Sources? Proof? Just stating your feelings aren't considered reliable... – Draken Apr 19 '17 at 12:21

    My proof is around 50 hours playing and I get the same result as I answer. On the wiki there is no such information but when you go around 20 days to the mines without stop to harvest the crop, you will know what rocks do you wanna detroy to farm geodes. – 7sega7 Apr 19 '17 at 12:41

It is more based on the items. For example 1 in 500 could be a diamond. The colors matter not.
