Additional Information

Faden is German for fibre, which refers to the white string or yarn-like inclusion that runs down the centre of the crystal, usually for its entire length. The crystals have a tabular habit, meaning they are flat.

Faden Quartz is often used to form a connection between two people, such as healer and client, and in some cases it is also used to strengthen the 'silver cord' that connects the astral self to the physical self while exploring astral travel. It can be used to increase spiritual connection, by holding near the Crown (termination on), and also displays the interesting ability of surrounding the body with light that doesn't actually flow through the body, offering protection that resembles a close-fitting suit of armour.
