Looks like quartz with a light hematite coating.

Dear Hershel, Thanks for the additional information. Do you consider this might have some value? Best Regards, Neil
Well, its not really uncommon, so the value is arbitrary, though the hematite peppering is a bit unique. If you found this yourself, and there is more of this material, definitely go out and collect more, and you just may find a really nice piece with good value.
