What is this stone?

Another piece from my friend today. It’s not Native American and I’m trying to decide if it’s really turquoise. The bezel and bail are simple and not marked. It measures 2 1/2” and about 1 3/4” and is approximately 1/2” thick. The weight is a little more than 55 grams.
I interested in hearing what y’all think. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

I’ll try with the natural daylight bulbs in the bathroom and if that doesn’t work I’ll take some tomorrow. It was dusk here when I started taking pictures.

@Bigbree43, I added some pictures last night. If these don’t help, I can take more this afternoon after work.

Those will work just fine! I’m sorry but I’ve just not seen another stone like it. I’m thinking the pendant is middle eastern though?

I’m pretty sure that it is. They used to have a local store and carried a variety of things. Some Of the jewelry was from Nepal.

I have no idea, but it reminds me of some sort of marble or granite?
