I've made this piece of jewellery but can't figure out the stone, jade, aventurine,fuchsite?

I'm really stuck and don't want to list incorrectly.

See picture, its green and speckled white. 

Mostly opaque but is translucent when edges backlit.
Any help appreciated. Thanks

Nephrite or jade by the look.

Jade. Almost 100% sure. And since nephrite is a form of jade, you would be fine to call it jade.

Not sure why everybody here is so certain that its jade. Just because a stone is green and opaque doesn't necessarily make it jade. In fact the color pattern would more likely indicate amazonite or aventurine. Though it's hard to tell without some more photos and a close-up.
