Faden Quartz
Waziristan Ophiolite, North Waziristan
FATA Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Pakistan
4.8 x 4.1 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $135
Spring 2020

A perfect flat style Faden Quartz with very clear line or "string" in a very clear prism. Textbook form and excellent condition, from the incredible find a few years ago in Waziristan. Faden Quartz is fairly rare world wide but this find was so productive that it is still possible to find a choice specimen at a very reasonable cost. As an extra, this has a very slight twist or bend to the main crystal. Remarkably the edges are all perfectly sharp and complete.
