Faden means "thread" in German, and refers to the white line that usually runs through the center of the crystal. Faden Quartz comes from a handful of locations worldwide but is most prevalent in Pakistan. Historically it came from Waziristan but more recently has been found in the city of Quetta in Northern Pakistan. It also comes from many other alpine-type localities. Quartz was our first stone passion. For a decade we have attempted to gather as much diversely included and colorful Quartzes as we could find, from every corner of the globe, travelling both to country of origin, and utilizing a vast network of suppliers developed through exhibiting at major USA and international gem and mineral shows. Here is a representation of those efforts - some of the best of our finds, as well as a tremendous volume that has just piled up as a result of wholesaling in volume! If you have a variety of aesthetic Quartz to add to our offerings, we'd love to see a flat of material! We also personally collect high quality fine Quartzes.
