Faden Quartz Crystals
"Faden" (pronounced "fah-den") means "thread" and refers to a white line that runs through the crystal.
The white, cloudy faden runs from left to right through the entire specimen. Faden quartz forms in cracks in the host rock that widen slowly. If the crystal is attached to both walls of the opening, it might be ruptured when the crack continues to open. This rupture will heal again, so a single crystal is once again connected to both walls and the next cycle of widening, rupture and healing can start
