Faden Quartz is an exceptionally wide vibrational and rare variety of Clear Quartz that displays a line, or thread, in milky white running through the center of the crystal. The line is usually parallel to the direction of growth and can vary in thickness.

The formation of the thread or Faden is due to the nature of the formation process. It is a result of the Quartz crystal that experiences and heals fissures while growing in a host rock. The line can contain trapped air bubbles or liquid within the crystal. 

The shape of most Faden Quartz crystals is tabular (broad and flat-topped). They also usually have 6 sides, which is typical of Quartz crystals. Faden Quartz specimens display a high clarity and vitreous luster.

Faden Quartz properties are the same as Clear Quartz. They are master healer crystals that are easily programmed and amplify intentions. Faden Quartz also has unique benefits linked to the symbolism and energy of the thread.

The meaning of Faden Quartz is connection.

The name origin and meaning of Faden Quartz is from the German word Faden, meaning “thread,” it is used as the official name for this specific variety of Quartz. It refers to the main distinguishing feature, which is the white thread that can be seen within the clear stone.

The Faden, or thread, is symbolic of connection and alignment. It can symbolize a strong and clear connection between two people or earthly and spiritual realms.

Its formation is symbolic of self-healing and adaptability. Faden Quartz crystals grow in fissures in rock along fault lines. The unique inclusion seen in Faden Quartz results from the crystal growing within a moving fissure that causes cracks to the crystal, which are healed as it grows, forming the characteristic thread.

Faden Quartz can include trapped gas and fluid, as well as color variations and inclusion, depending on the other minerals present and specific environmental factors during formation. This crystal is grounding and fast-acting, offering potent energetic upgrades.
