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.
This item was once owned by Bobby McCall, Supreme Troll on Ebay. Bobby died in mid-July of 2011. He was a dear friend, spanning a friendship of several lifetimes. Bobby was very sensitive to the stones, and obsessively cleansed them energetically before he offered them for sale. Many of his customers bought his stones for the energy that he put into them. He was a very special man who helped out everyone who crossed his path that needed help. He always had open arms and a tremendously kind heart towards all people and animals. We were fortunate enough to get a chance to own (and buy back) many of Bobby's stones. It is our intention to help spread Bobby's message and energy to the world once again, in honor of his life and legacy as such an amazing human full of compassion and care for people, many whom he had never even met! We are now offering many of the exact same stones that he had on his Ebay store for sale again. If you knew of Bobby, did business with him, or had a relationship with him, we would love to hear your stories. Long Live the Supreme Troll, Bobby McCall. He will be greatly missed.
Pakistan boasts a rich array of minerals, many of which have yet to be uncovered. High in the Himalayas, miners attempt insane mountaineering to get to gem pegmatites. Known worldwide first and foremost for stunning Aquamarine specimens, Pakistan regularly surprises the mineral community with combo minerals and new finds all the time. It also hosts a large amount of the pegmatite minerals that are found in Afghanistan, as many of these finds cross the border.
