Turquoise? Or Chrysocolla?

Just trying to figure out what stone is in this ring!

What a nice cut, great dome. I would call this turquoise, but don’t have a clue from where. The ring looks like it has some age.

I don’t know if this helps, but I’ve been looking at all these different sites trying to find a stones that look like the ones in my Peterson Johnson ring (with no luck, I might add) & I stumbled upon these pics of polished Bloodstones that reminded me of your ring:

which led me to this site, as well:

2nd link has good descriptions, but unfortunately it lacks photos.
It took me to Green Jasper (google)… & totally unrelated, but real pretty, Owyhee Jasper (omg, this stuff blew me away!).

& finally… I think Chrysocolla is bluer? Isn’t it?
I’m probably way off… won’t be the 1st time!

Bloodstone is actually one of my favorite stones! This ring is actually much bluer than shown in this picture though (due to indoor lighting). I’ll try and post a pic in natural light.

Here are some outdoor photos:

And a pic of the back just in case:
