I'm not sure what your question is. If you found a something that you think is moldavite, please post a photo of it. Someone can help you positively identify if its natural or just regular synthetic.

That looks too large and has the wrong texture to be moldavite. Looks like colored glass in my opinion.

Definately NOT Moldavite. It may be Emerald or some kind of Beryl though. Interesting piece!
