Can you do a few things for us? Shine a light behind it and I believe it will be translucent meaning it will glow as light passes through it..post a picture of the underside of this rock. You say you found it digging in the woods but you did not say where. Like in Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, Missouri, Michigan, Montana, Mississippi or Minnesota?

Looks like labradorite to me. Might be some kind of calcite or fluorite but due to its solid greenish color my first thought is labradorite. Here’s one of my labradorite to compare it with. Rough from Madagascar. Untreated. Hope this helps. 

 

Kind regards,
