It looks like regular sugar quartz to me as well.Ā 

I am not sure how copper makes anything glow. There is no copper in your specimen for sure.

Moonstone "glows" at 180 degree planes because of light refractions between layers of mineral. This is obviously not a layered mineral but a granular one. That easily differentiates it from topaz as well.

Any chance of a photo of the specimen without the creative lighting? Outside in sunlight works best for mineral ID.
