Thank you. It's a hue semi see through green color. Not sure if it's natural or a Prasiolite and or Green Amethyst.

Pictures are poor but I would guess a man made fluorite cleaved octahedron.

To clarify for someone who is probably a beginner: fluorite is a naturally-occurring mineral composed of calcium and fluorine atoms in a regular arrangement. A fluorite crystal has directions of weakness along which it can be readily broken - cleavages. Fluorite, especially when found as incomplete crystals, is often cleaved (by people) along these directions to form octahedral shapes, like yours. The material is natural, but the shape is man-made. Such fluorite octahedra are quite common at mineral shows.

Thanks Pete, you are right and we should have explained what we mean
