I'm not sure but I think it's safe to call this thing quartz. Whatever it is, I'm sure it has one heck of a story to tell. From the research I've done on these minerals, it would appear that they are preserving evidence of a very, very bad day on earth. This looks like quartz that was trying to morph into something else.

Looks like a piece of river worn jasper.
