This also looks like travertine. Do the same acid test I mentioned in your other post.

This materially is typically from Pakistan & is often referred to as onyx or banded onyx.I would not call this 'green onyx'. Most of the material on the market known as green onyx is most often used in jewelry & is dyed to a rich emerald green color. You will often find it used in lower priced silver jewelry often being sold as emerald.
