Clear, tabular faden quartz from Balochistan. There is contact along along a portion of the edges. Small ding on the termination. 

The term “faden quartz” refers to usually tabular quartz with a white growth “thread” running through the center. Faden quartz forms within gradually widening fissures in the host rock, where the crystals rupture and heal as the fissure grows wider (see https://www.mindat.org/min-46656.html.)
