Milk Quartz or White Quartz

+1 vote

I found a piece of what I believe to be Milk quartz in central Wyoming. It is a large piece probably weighs 4-5 pounds 6 inches tall. It does have some dark color to it though. kinda has me wondering if it might be something else? It doesn't taste like salt either. LOL! Does it have any value. Thanks for the help

Can you post a picture of your rock piece.Add it to this post. Tell us as much as you know about it. Is it as hard as quatz one of the hardest items you will find. Can you scratch it with a piece of quartz you already know is quartz.. Will it react with a weak acid? Thanks for posting.

By definition, milky quartz is any cloudy version of white quartz, so they are one in the same. A ll quartz is very common.all stones hold value to the owner. Some have better value due to size and quality but quartz is the second most common stone behind feldspar..
