Curved branching Faden quartz, floater. We can send you the Mineralogical Record article on Faden Quartz, to understand the miracle of nature that these crystals are. Formed high in the Himalayas fissures forming underground during earthquakes, these crystals were stressed and/or broken repeatedly and grew across fissures, forming a bridge the widening gap filled with hot solutions. The c axis on this one was perpendicular to the wall, statistically very rare.
