If it is flourite it might glow after exposing it to light. It is also way softer than emerald. You would be able to scratch it with a nail file or a common nail.

The color and crystal habit are definitely off for it to be emerald. Certainly looks more like fluorite with those colors and color zoning, assuming the colors are natural and not dyed.
