Is this a diamond (diamond identification)

Given the crystal habit (shape) and the matrix, I would rule out diamond -  I mention it first, since this is a diamond forum! 😉.

It seems to be a nicely terminated quartz crystal in a limonite/magnetite (iron ore) matrix, but for confirmation/definite ID a photo is not enough.
