This was my second thought. My first thought was that it was the Dust of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials, which ceased to make sense extremely quickly! (Great series, by the way, if anyone hasn't read them. Don't be put off by the fact that they're kids' books. The third contains mountains of stuff that I imagine would sail over most kids' heads.)
