Can you tell me what stone this is in my necklace?

My sister gave this to my as a gift. She bought it in a Turkish Bazaar. It is set in white gold.

 

Does anyone know what stone this is? It is olive colored not the bright yellow-green of a peridot. First photo is without sunlight taken on a white towel. Second photo is the same but taken in the sunlight.

The 2nd pic in the light does look like a peridot. You say olive color. Maybe it's an olive quartz. Search Olive Quartz on Google & click on images at the top to see if it looks like that.

It looks like moldavite to me. There are both genuine and fake moldivite out on the market so I don't know how to tell the difference. You could google it.

I did bring it to my trusted local jeweler and they do not know what it is. It is a dull looking olive color like Denim & Co. pants.

Could be olivine or peridot.

I just googled moldevite. It does look like that. I have never heard of moldevite. I guess it is a semi-precious gemstone. I don't wear these colors. I want to sell this on ebay. I wonder what I should ask for?

Moldevite is a form of glass and has visible bubbles in it.
