Hello, welcome to Just Answer.

The answer is coal.

I wonder if your answer is correct because of the last statement....Come and view the wondrous sight.
I cross referenced many riddle sources and this is the official answer for that particular riddle. As it's made to rhyme, the first line is "Guess this riddle now you must". So the last line may just be a line to complete the rhyme. The stone is the fire because coal can burn without producing a flame, so the flame is only smoke (dust). The color refer to the state of the coal when it heat.
