Need an advise regarding this stone.

+1 vote
Hi!
My dad found this in a cave embedded on a rock while trekking in a remote jungle in Asia.
Please help me identify the stone as I have always thought it could be of value.

In my opinion, it could be anything. You need to see if it scratches glass or if you can scratch the substance with Quartz or a pocket knife. I like it as a rough diamond but the crack argues against it for me. That would knock out super hard minerals like Quartz and sapphire, too. I'd like to see what our people think.
