    A bit too blurry for me, but perhaps that's just my eyes.

    Could be granite, but the pics are way too blurry to tell.

    Yeah, it's a bit blurry because I took the picture off of my webcam so I apologize for the picture quality.

    Since the books in the background are in focus and the rock isn't maybe if you take a step back, you can get a sharp picture of the rock. Just a thought.

    Looks like a possible Quartz Monzonite to me. Seems to be a fair bit of k-feldspar and lacking in Qtz. That could just be the lighting in the photo however.
