Most likely chrysocolla but could be turquoise also. If you can provide the general location, that would help.

It’s about 20 miles from Wickenburg.

Also there were solid veins of this stuff in white granite.

It's probably chrysocolla. I found a lot of it to the west of Wickenburg.

I think morlock’s got this one nailed down. No reason for me to guess.

The only location of turquoise in maricopa county that I know of is the sacred frog mine which is halfway between wickenburg and lake pleasant. 

On the other hand, chrysocolla is found in a number of locations in maricopa county, mostly to the west.

I found a vein of chrysocolla in Maricopa county.  It was hosted in a white quartz vein.  Thought it was turquoise at first no luck though. I've seen spots of chrsocholla in rocks throughout the county, more like copper staining in basalt rock, some areas this staining is more than others, but only once in a good vein.  I have a sample of that sitting in my front yard,
