On this piece of chert it appears to have either an iron or copper coloring at the top but a green undertone at the bottom. 
On the second picture I’m assuming that was caused by erosion. 
What would create the green undertone coloring?

It doesn't have the typical characteristics of chert.  The green could be microscopic algae.

I suspect this is Dolomite.
