Faden Quartz Crystal Pendant
Fabulous Faden Quartz Crystal Pendant! This outstanding Faden quartz is set magnificently in Argetnium Silver (.935).
Faden means "thread" and refers to a white line that runs through the crystal.
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. The repeated rupturing and healing leaves a scar of liquid and gas inclusions in the crystal: a white thread, the faden. The faden can be seen best in crystals that grew parallel to the wall, because the speed of growth is usually larger along the crystals c-axis (from tip to tip). Initially the faden quartz might have been thin, but it gets wider as the crystal continues to grow and often assumes a platy shape.
Faden quartz is a typical product of alpine-type fissures, because two essential conditions of faden quartz formation are often met in that environment: the fissure in the host rock opens slowly and continuously, and the crystal growth starts immediately after the initial crack formation and continues for a long time.
Pendant measurements: approx. 69mm x 24mm x 8mm (25.4mm = 1 inch)
