Von, this could be jade but I doubt it. I think it could more likely be beach glass. Back light it and see if it is translucent, meaning light will pass through it. If it is glass it will ight up like a Christmas ornament. If it does not maybe jade or jadeite. Beach glass is necessarily found near water. Also when you answer, let us know where you found it. If it was emerald it would be so hard you couldn't scratch it likely with anything you own like a common nail or a pocketknife.
