I received a message stating that I reached a limit of 15 specimens and couldn't add any more to my collection page. Is there a way to get around this?

Thanks!

Now if you go to Webmineral.com you can do a search and find all minerals with a hardness of 8. (There are 28). Probably you will be able to rule out most of them based on scarcity, locality, etc. ...

Hard to say from this picture. Try another one with the "beryl" in front.

Did you do a hardness test? Streak test?

At the moment, it looks more like quartz to me.
