It's unakite. :). One of my favorite stones. What a beautiful ring.

My guess would be moss agate. Doesn't unakite have a green and salmon pink color to it? I think this one is clear/opaque and green.
Here are some pics of moss agate:

Here's some unakite. I thought the stone was not clear, but opaque with a heavy shine. My eyes aint what they used to be.


I love the piece either way.

I agree - whatever it is, it is a gorgeous ring!
