Can you please post a picture with a better view of the crystal structure? The matrix stone looks somewhat porous.

Thanks for re-posting. How about it, Does anyone recognize this mineral?
Even with the new picture, its still hard to tell. I can't see any definitive crystal structure in there, nor do we have any other properties or locality info. Though a very rough suggestion would be perhaps smoky quartz, judging from its arrangement and possible agate/silica underlayer.
