1 Chronicles 29:2  (King James Version)
Now I have prepared with all my might for the house of my God the gold for things to be made of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and the brass for things of brass, the iron for things of iron, and wood for things of wood; onyx stones, and stones to be set, glistering stones, and of divers colours, and all manner of precious stones, and marble stones in abundance.

I have prepared

the gold

onyx stones
{Avney shoham,} which was, probably, not the precious stone or gem called onyx, but a marble called in Greek {onychites,} which Pliny mentions as a stone Caramania; for one would hardly think that gems of any kind were used externally in such a building as the temple. Antiquity gave both stones this name, because of their resemblance to the nail of the finger.

Revelation 21:18-21

glistering stones
{Avney phuch} seems to denote a kind of black marble, so called from its colour resembling stibium: so Vulgate {quasi stibinos.}

marble stones
{Avney shayish} is rendered in the Targum {avney marmoraiyah,}
"stones of marble," and by the LXX., and Vulgate [Parion] or
[Parinon,] or {marmor Parium,} "Parium marble," which was remarkable for its bright white colour. Josephus says that the temple was built of large blocks of white marble, beautifully polished, so as to produce a most splendid appearance.
