Faden is a German word meaning thread, and these crystals are characterized by the white, threadlike lines running through them. Many are also tabular (flat), and consist of joined crystals with the line running through them. The lines indicate what is commonly called a self-healed crystal. Such crystals are formed in the midst of shifts in the earth surrounding them which cause them to break, then to re-heal.
Faden crystals are good for seeking out information important to our growth.
