A classic gemmy Quartz variety Faden from the Swiss Alps, at Hinterrhein Valley. The specimen displays great aesthetic form, measuring to a height of 6.4cm and showing the characteristic frosty white spine and excellent development of well terminated colourless glass clear Quartz crystals. Around the base of the Faden are colourless to tinted brown Quartz crystals on a light grey matrix. A fine specimen of the variety from Switzerland.
