Beautiful Teal Color Pendant

I have a pendant that I purchased about 15-20 yrs ago at a psychic fair. I was told that this particular stone was rare and the supply would soon be all gone.  If I'm remembering correctly, I think they told me it was synthetic or man-made. It is a beautiful teal color with dark areas. The color seems to have crystallized with the color spreading throughout the stone like ice sometimes crystallizes.

I would like to identify this particular stone and can find nothing online that even resembles it. The dealer I purchased from was traveling through and I have no way of contacting them. If I sent you a picture of this stone, could you help me identify it?

If the stone is completely opaque then your stone could be either chrysocolla or turquoise on the basis of color teal (greenish-blue). But it would make sense if you can post the picture of the gemstone.
