This unique variety of Quartz comes from Pakistan. Faden Quartz has a cloud of white within the crystal, which formed as the crystal repaired or "healed" itself. Natural disturbances inside the Earth (fissures, faults, earthquakes, tremors, etc.) sometimes cause fractures to form within crystals. The white line seen in Faden Quartz is the healing line where the silica-rich mineral solution sealed the fractures and re-grew one or more times. It is said that these are a premier healing stone in the Quartz family because the specimen itself was able to heal or re-seal from fracturing and damage. This variety of Quartz often forms in a curtain-like formation, with inter-grown crystal groups creating multiple and double terminations like those seen here.
