Could be quartz, or chalcedony, or any of a number of salts, or calcite. If you can scratch it with a knife, it will not be quartz or chalcedony which are both very hard. I listed those first two in the order of likelihood. This is most likely quartz.

I scratched the stone with a knife and it doesn't get scratches.
So than Weasel's assessment is probably correct. I second that its most likely quartz.
