2.2" Faden Quartz Crystal Cluster - Pakistan
This amazing faden quartz crystal cluster contains liquid and gas scars throughout the entire specimen, leaving the quartz with thread like inclusions. This multi-terminated quartz is fairly transparent and inclusions are easily viewed.
Faden quartz is typically found in mountainous regions, with Quetta and Northern Pakistan being the most well known deposits of these beautiful specimens. These quartz formations occurs between cracks in a host rock. The cracks in the rock expand with the crystals, occasionally causing ruptures within the crystal, from pressure. This causes the healing process to begin, giving rise to the branching off of parallel faden quartz crystals, which can be seen in the majority of our listed specimens.
