Hi Vishesh,

Peroxisomes are small, membrane bound organelles present in the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells. They are filled with enzymes that catalyse a variety of metabolic reactions. Peroxisomes play a key role in the oxidation of specific biomolecules. They also contribute to the biosynthesis of membrane lipids known as plasmalogens. 

Cystoliths are deposition of calcium carbonate found in epidermal cells of different parts of plants such as figs.
