I did a little research about this "Mercury" meteorite, it is still not 100% decided that it is from Mercury and may never be proven to be so.

Here's another photo and a link to it's story of being found and tested, etc., by the way, the green color of this "Mercury" meteorite is from chromian diopside, so you can have a sample of your's tested to see if it's test the same for having chromian diopside as part of it's makeup.

That's being said, the "Mercury" meteorite does show a fusion crust, which I don't see on your specimen, so your's may not be a meteorite, but could possibly have chromian diopside as part of it's makeup, or not as there are many other minerals that could contribute to it's green color.
