It is quartz and there are some accessory minerals in it. Probably iron.

That is the type of quartz I look for when prospecting.There could be trace amounts of gold in it,you would have to crush and pan it to find out.

I agree with most of the posters above.
Looks like the kind of quartz we have in California.
Definite possibility of gold.
Take an eye loupe to examine closely.

Thanks for the replies. I have confirmed mica. There was previously a mica mine in the area. I am in Ontario, Canada.
