check the mineral/gemstone lists for clear specimens and you'll find your answer :)

(my guess is a quartz, smoky or clear, but idk if they usually form that way)

Herschel knows crystals better. I would bet against quartz. Selenite would be my guess.

Hello.   The crystals are yellowy green and it is on a matrix (white).  I hope it is not actinolite?

Thank you
