    I lifted up my floor lamp and there was a sand-like dust/dirt under the base. I thought it could actually be sand (somehow) since I recently went on vacation. However, when I put it down and moved it again, the substance was on the floor again. Seeing how it's under the base of the lamp, I'm concerned it's some kind of feces/eggs. I had a bed bug scare a few weeks ago, but have not had any other symptoms *knock on wood*

    What is this?

    Almost certainly quartz grit or sand.
