Here we are again. Pictures only! No collection location, no streak test, no hardness test and a completely ignored Rock/Mineral forum section. Let me get my Tarot cards out ....

My wife says it's milky quartz. This is a sample of hers from Idaho (found in layers not in geodes).

Quartz or calcite. I see a terminated crystal that I will say is quartz. Put a drop of vinegar on one of the crystals and watch for a reaction. If no reaction, it is probably quartz. If you see a light fizzing or discoloration, it's probably calcite, but I think it is quartz.

Welcome to Tnet Lola! I,ll put it nicely. It always helps to ID a rock if you give the location where found and any info that might make that location relevant to your find. Any other info if you have it,such as,how hard is it,how heavy is it will help in the ID. As mentioned,there,s a forum especially for rocks and minerals down the page a bit and more of the rock guys hang out there so a better chance for an ID.Hope this helps you and may your time here be informative.It looks like quartz to me too,about the only rock I can identify.

I’m quartz camp some look pretty much like a classic quartz crystal, calcite usually isn’t as clean and sharp it’s usually leaning a little bit or a little less defined
