I recently had my first Reiki attunement, and after meditating on it over my lunch hour today, a piece of gravel near my head called to me.

Under artificial light, it looks like a fairly ordinary piece of dark gray microcrystalline quartz, but it's much closer to opal in weight and it fluoresces to a light demin blue in the sun light.
It has a definite buzz to it that reminds me of laramar

Any idea what it is?

Well, yes, but it isn't particularly showy

Isn't pyrite usually a gold color?

I was thinking perhaps a variety of feldspar...

Much lighter in weight, more like opal
Since limestone is very common here, I'm thinking something along the line of the Calcite-Gypsum family

One thing that helps on occasion is to try looking at it in different light, try to look through it with the sun behind it, try florescent, turn it at angles etc.

It's funny, today I was packing around one of those egg-shaped polished rocks I picked up at the store (only $1.50!) and just happened to pass under a florescent lamp.  It was then I realized its base color was blue, not black!

Might also try some scratch tests for harness to help figure it out, good luck!
