This exceptional FADEN QUARTZ crystal specimen comes from Tole (Toyee), Wana, South Waziristan, Fata, Pakistan. Faden quartz is famous for the white lines that are seen inside the crystals. These are caused by break-and-rehealed zones that wind their way through the centers of these quartz crystals. These zones produce string-like white lines, which are composed of air and/or tiny water bubbles. The name faden is reportedly derived from the German word for "string." This is another very fine specimen that we found at the Tucson Gem, Rock and Mineral Show.
