Faden quartz is a silicon dioxide mineral with a hexagonal crystal system and a hardness of 7. It is distinguished from other Quartz crystals by the presence of a fuzzy white line running through the middle. Faden Quartz comes from Pakistan, Brazil and Arkansas, USA.
Faden Quartz is one of the premier healing stones of the Quartz family. Perhaps because the stones themselves were “injured” (broken and re-healed) during their growth process, they carry the pattern of healing very strongly within their natural programming.
