Not too many details as I can't recall much. 2005-ish(?) live-action American film where a boy finds glowing stones (not gems, but rocks with glowing portions) that hold some kind of power. The government, or some other kind of science officials, somehow get their hands on it, but the boy insists that "They're just.. rocks." I distinctly remember a scene where the little sister attempts to hold or touch the rocks whilst they are floating in their yard (maybe their power got activated?) and he yells something at her, probably to have her get back.

Sorry this isn't much info, will edit if I remember anything else.

    Did the rocks actually do anything other than float? Was this set in America?

    There was some other power that the rocks had, but I don't really remember what it was. I watched this when I was only 6 or so years old, so my memories are pretty scarce. Nov 2 '21 at 0:36

    It was made in America (stating that it was not a foreign movie), and I am very certain that it was set in America as well. Nov 2 '21 at 0:36

Maybe Shorts, written by Robert Rodriguez, and released in 2008?

Some common elements: The fundamental description matches in its entirety: 2005-ish(?) live-action American film where a boy finds glowing stones (not gems, but rocks with glowing portions) that hold some kind of power.

Date is right-ish: 2008 is close-ish to 2005-ish.

Live-action: check.

American film: large-budget WB release with well-known director.

Character & story are right: a boy finds glowing stones (not gems, but rocks with glowing portions) that hold some kind of power.

Brother & Sister: main protagonist has a bratty little sister (played by Kat Dennings)

Nefarious military-industrial complex pseudo government organization: Black Box Agency led by James Spader’s Mr. Black seeks the stones and their power.

    Can you explain why this matches so that we have searchable text and the answer is valid even if the video goes down?
