Need help identifying a stone

0 votes

alt textI found a very large piece of what I believe is quartz. It is white and glistens. Is there someone local I can bring it to so I can properly identify it. I am located in RI.

Yes, looks like quartz. If you have another piece of quartz, see if this will scratch it. That will give a more definitive result and rule out any of the feldspars.
