What is the white stone?

Revelation 2:17 (ESV)

17 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.’

The colour white points to its heavenly origin and significance. (It is perhaps helpful to observe that stone available in Pergamum is not white but dark in colour.)
