Cabinet size cluster of faden quartz from Balochistan, Pakistan. Its crystals range from translucent to clear, and  some are double terminated. The terminations on a few upward-pointing crystals are incomplete. 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.)
