Default Came back to detecting and 5th time out a lil gold, possible emerald?

Just started up detecting again after a year or so break, found about 3.75 in clad, a couple crappy faux ear rings, and then this lil gem here. It's 2.5 grams 18K with a green gemstone in it. I was thinking probably an emerald. It definitely brightened up my day of digging can slaw!






Thanks for looking!!!

I was using the etrac. It came up as 12-06 12-07 on it.

Air testing it on the AT Pro came up as 43-45 for what it's worth!
