Faden quartz is self-healed quartz. This crystal is fractured but healed itself, forming a visible line or thread. This encourages those fragmented soul parts, traumas, or other situations to reintegrate and heal. It is excellent for helping those working through the process of self-healing at any level, whether it be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.
This type of quartz is used by many crystal healers as an attunement stone. It is useful for connecting the energies of healer and client and gaining better access the healing situation. This helps bring the session to a balanced conclusion.
Faden Quartz is helpful in dealing with situations from past lives. It will assist with bone fractures, enhancing the healing process after proper medical treatment. These crystals are helpful in group or family conflicts, allowing proper communication to resolve the issues.
This type of quartz gets its name from the German word faden, meaning “thread”. This is in reference to the “thread” created inside this crystal when it forms.
Many believed this type of quartz to be a connecting crystal, creating links between its carrier and different planes of reality.
When a fissure occurs in a stone containing quartz, the crystals will split in two. Quartz heals quickly and, in time, will form back together unevenly. If this process continues to occur, the crystals will develop the “threads” seen in faden quartz from continuously forming back together. Quartz is often clear and can be found worldwide.
Faden Quartz can also be a “Growth Interference Crystal”. This occurs when the growth of the quartz is tampered with by another crystal forming nearby.
This stone is associated with all chakras.
You can place this stone in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.
This crystal is associated with all astrological signs.
Faden Quartz is believed to help with cellular and nervous system regeneration. It can also aid bone fractures and muscle damage after proper medical treatment.
