Steve,
Yes color of firebricks can differ it depends who makes them or where the clay they are made of came from. ClayPave firebricks I most often work with are white, sometimes I find yellowish to yellow color brick between them.

These chips in corners or on edges won't hurt except maybe in visual matter; you can sort out nicest bricks to use in walls and arches. Turn them with the better side towards the inside hot face. Don't use mortar to fill these chips, the mortar could drop off in some time.

Make sure they are hard, solid and heavy firebricks that absorb heat. (Not insulating light in weight firebricks - insulating bricks have air spaces in them, like honeycomb effect, and won't absorb heat therefore are not good for cooking part.) r
