All 3 have the same dual color. Quartz? I'm really a rookie, not sure

Citrine is quartz that has small quantities of iron in it. You have a light yellow and brown layers. Those are citrine..You also have a gray layer which I'm not sure of.

Doesn't scratch glass, obviously scratched by quartz. Reacts to vinegar. Not citrine I don't think. Calcite? Thoughts?

I'm going to say calcite and aragonite. In fact, I'm going to get a little more specific and say you've probably got some fragments from a septarian nodule, like this one.

I was just starting to think the Sam thing. Not the nodule bit, but it makes me extremely sad that if it was, it's broken
