I’m pretty sure a jeweller would be able to ID your stone.

A jeweler should be able to tell and most might just test it for free.

In my area jewelers will clean your rings for free and when they do they usually test the stones before cleaning so they are sure what they are dealing with so you can’t later claim that they switched out your stones.

My grandmother had my great-great grandmother’s stone from a ring reset into a necklace. She had no idea what it was, or what it was worth. 

I took it to my jeweler’s to be appraised, and found it was worth almost $500! Gramma was very, very (pleasantly) surprised. 

I would definitely recommend taking it to a jeweler to be appraised. I think it runs between $50 and $80 at most places, and it can be worth it – even just to know what it is!
