Is this stone an emerald or is it too blue?

That color could still be an emerald. If it was blue it would be aquamarine, but this definitely has a green that would indicate emerald. Thats not to say that it can be positively identified as emerald because of its color, but it is possible that that color in a beryl would indicate emerald.
