Onyx is a banded variety of Calcite.  The colors of its bands range from white to almost every color except shades of purple, blue and black.  It is used for vases, bowls, beads, cabochons and other items.  This type is found in Mexico and Pakistan and is often carved and polished into various items.  This material is much more readily available and softer than the gemstone commonly called Black Onyx which is a silica gem.

Marble is a metamorphic rock consisting of Limestone but mostly composed of Calcite.  It is used extensively for sculpture, building material and has many decorative uses.  The pure white Marble is probably the most common form known, but the characteristic swirls and veins of many colored Marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as Clay, Silt, Sand, Iron Oxides or Chert.

Dalmatian Stone, or orbicular Rhyolite, is an igneous rock that was formed by lava flows on the Earth's surface.  The spots or "orbs" probably occurred when molten lava reacted with fragments of rock known as Xenoliths.  These stones are light to dark tan in color with black spots throughout.  The nickname "Dalmatian" was given to this unusual looking mineral because of its resemblance to a Dalmatian dog's spots.

The most common form of Goldstone give the illusion of being a reddish-brown, although in fact the color comes from the Copper crystals and the glass itself is colorless. Other variants have an intensely color matrix usually blue or violet, and more rare, green.
