Can anyone identify this rock/mineral?

0 votes

It looks like very milky quartz, but too milky. There is also the fact that it looks as if someone rolled quartz up into little balls and built this larger specimen. It is very heavy, but I forgot to weigh it.

 

 

I am going to ask the owner more about it as soon as I can and post more info here.

One way to narrow it down would be to attempt to scratch the surface. Quartz you would not be able to scratch with a common nail.
