FAH-den, from the German “faden” meaning thread.
Physical description: Faden quartz crystals have a fuzzy white thread-like area going side-to-side. I primarily find them in Tabby crystals, most especially Tabby clusters (two or more Tabby points attached side-to-side, as in the drawing below). The fuzzy “thread” reminds me of the white thing you sometimes find in chicken eggs when you scramble them (it is the umbilical cord of the embryo, I know, ugh). The energy in Faden crystals is sticky and connective like in the egg description but without the grossness factor.
Metaphysical description: Faden crystals are good for astral travel (silver cord) and connecting (thread). You may have a Faden crystal which spans just one crystal (or in the case of a Tabby cluster), between more than one crystal. Work with the Faden line in the crystal with that in mind. Faden lines in single crystals may help you connect within a certain realm or lifetime. If it spans between more than one crystal, you may travel between more than one realm, plane or even lifetime. You may also tap into the properties of both Tabby (communication) and Faden (connecting) to work with a connection between yourself and another.
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SIZE:
THE IMAGE SHOWN IS AN EXAMPLE OF A FADEN CRYSTAL. YOU WILL RECEIVE A SIMILAR CRYSTAL, BUT NOT THE CRYSTAL PICTURED.
*The size of these crystals will vary. I will send the most representative example of the type of configuration ordered, so if a crystal is small, but an excellent example of the particular configuration, I will send that crystal. If it is particularly small, I may send two in one bag (say 1/2 inch or so)… I aim for a size range from 1 to 2 inches long, 1/2 to 3/4 inch diameter.
Your Faden crystal will come with a business-card-sized printed description of the characteristics and special qualities of the crystal within. Crystal sizes may vary greatly in size as I am selecting for the shape, not the size.
I have packaged it with the description card to help you learn the identifying characteristics and uses of this special configuration.
This crystal is sent as a representative sample of a Faden crystal. It isn’t necessarily sent for its size, and sometimes may be Empathic (chipped, dinged or damaged), if it is an excellent representation of this type (for example, a very good Manifestation point in an Empathic chunk, or an excellent Record Keeper on a partial point).
Thanks, and ENJOY!!
