Yes, another - Can You Help Identify My Rocks ?

After 17 years, I recently discovered the amazing world beneath my feet while walking the beach in front of my house! I started to gather a few of the pebbles and then, using my wife's tumbling machine (she makes jewlery) polished them. Perhaps it would have been wiser to ID them before this process?

Anyway, I have posted my first 9 below,

along with my best guess as to what they might be. Please be forwarned...I am a rank beginner and may be way off on some / all of them! Any help in confirming or steering me straight would be very much appreciated. Any comments on what might be causing the colors seen in some of the samples would also be appreciated.

The pebbles were gathered on the east coast of Mayne Island, south-west British Columbia...between Vancouver Island and mainland B.C. (Georgia Straight)

Thanks for looking.
