Is this quartz? Marble? Something else?

0 votes

I received this as a gift so I have no background information on this piece, but I am almost positive it was purchased somewhere rather than personally dug up. I am making assumptions on what it is based on appearance. Any help is appreciated.

It appears to be quartz. If it is, it will be very hard. You could not scratch it with a knife.
