Quartz -Fadden
Waziristan Ophiolite, North Waziristan
FATA Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Pakistan
6 x 3.8 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $350
Spring 2019

Sharp, gem clear and in perfect condition, a fine distorted Quartz cluster showing a distinct faden line or string inclusion. This is a cluster of three main Quartz prisms, each of which has a different habit, yet all have faden strings. The main prism is nicely perched and is the focal point, displays well from any angle and has an unusual tabular form. In excellent condition there are no chips or bruises visible by naked eye, 20X magnification inspection finds only incredibly small rough spots, this is essentially perfect. This find in Waziristan was big news in the mineral world, superb, world class and prolific. The large quantities found have kept the cost of a fine piece very reasonable. This specimen is far better than average, better in person.
