Found it on a random spot along a Patagonian lake shore, where black obsidian and common quartz are everywhere, and caught my attention. A friend of mine wants to break it, but I am not sure of that idea

It's a piece of black rock which at some point in geological time has fractured. The fractures filled with a white mineral.

Not much else to be said from a half-focused piece of rock with fractures...

The "white material" is blue and could be chalcedony.

The picture is poor but on first impression, it looks very similar to the common blue opal found South of Tucson, Arizona.
