There is no way we can tell from a picture alone. Try to scratch it. If it is a diamond you will not be able to scratch it.

I tried scratching with lot of other stones and with steel too, none of them left a scratch. I used a very sharp pointed pigeob blood ruby and scratched very very hardly, i can see a light scratch with magnify glass only, its just a light scratch but nothing deep.diamond tester clearly raised up to 8 pts
On one side Clear pepper spots can be seen inside the stone.Diamond tester clearly raising up to 8 pts when tested
could be quartz too
