Looks very much like Youngite material.  Plenty of images you can check on google.

I just googled it. I think you nailed it. My gpa lived in Wyoming for awhile so he probably acquired it while there. That means this is old too. Thanks so much for your help! Your awesome

NP happy to help.  Some materials have distinct clues that make it easy.  Glad you are having fun with the collection.  I still have my grandfathers stones that he collected when he drove across the US in the early fifties.  Fortunately he kept meticulous notes and labeled each one.
