Does anyone know what this stone might be? The lighter color has more green (a seafoam green) in it than it appears in the photo. I have read the posting instructions but I thought I would ask anyway.

Your stone is a conundrum.
Would you flip it an post a pic of the other side?
Have any info on hardness, or reaction to muratic acid?
Have you tried soaking a Q-tip in acetone and testing the back side to see any color comes out?

I couldn't show the back because it is already in a necklace that I made. I figured out what the stone is though. I have some rough stone that I looked up, and it is Damele Spider Web Turquoise. I found the info here https://www.durangosilver.com/damele-sp ... uoise.html My later mother cut this from the rough stone that I have. I have a photo attached of the necklace against the stone.

I was unfamiliar with it, thanks for letting us know.
