Found this in a crawl today. It was pretty solid until moved then became pretty fine, almost like a powder. I want to say it looked like a bag of lime, however it was spread under one entire room and was behind the insulation at several locations. Well ventilated, no moisture and had a vapor barrier.

Thoughts?

It was probably lime then. Plumbers regularly spread lime in crawlspaces when there's been a waste line leak.
