More Information

Faden Quartz occurs when Quartz crystals grow in a fault zone, where earthquakes and other movement in the earth cause the crystal to grow in beautiful chain-like patterns. As the earth splits further and further apart, quartz deposits add upon each other and create a “bridge” between the widening gap in the earth. This constant movement and change in environment makes these crystals have fascinating formations that are admired by collectors
