I created a Gmap with the Gmap module and views. There are two different marker types, based on different Gmap marker fields in the used node types.

The markers are clustered with GMaps Utility Library MarkerClusterer. And I added a MarkerClusterer styles in JSON. This results in clustering all markers regardless the marker type.

How to get each marker type cluster separately?

Is this something for OpenLayers?

The Comparison of mapping modules includes this:

GMap is considered a legacy module.

So maybe you want to have a look at the IP Geolocation Views & Maps module. Partial quote from its project page:

Despite what the name may suggest, IP Geolocation Views & Maps (IPGV&M) is first and foremost a mapping engine.

The module makes it very easy to create Views-based mapping solutions using the map renderer of your choice (Google, OpenLayers or Leaflet) with any location storage module of your choice, e.g.:

This allows you to bring together modules and feature sets that without IPGV&M you would not be able to combine.

Like beautiful animated marker clustering on Google or Bing or Mapbox ... any of various map providers.

But more importantly IPGV&M adds some features you won't find as conveniently packaged elsewhere.

These include marker differentiation based on field values or ranges (2nd screenshot) with or without font icons, various centering options, super-imposing the current visitor's location, allowing multiple content types to be displayed on the same map, full screen button and mini-map inset (bottom screenshot), polygon support (Geofield), marker tags and tool tips and cross-highlighting of associated content on the page when markers are hovered (and vice versa).

enter image description here

Head over to its (impressive) project page for even more information about it (it would be way too long to include a quote of it all here). That project page also includes various screenshots.
