Quartz (Faden habit) from Pakistan.

Faden Quartz is a tabular form of quartz, that differs from other quartzs due to a fuzzy white line running through the crystal.

Transparent and tabular Faden group of stacked doubly terminated Quartz crystals in parallel growth with a milky faden visible line.
Also a feature is the curved sightly growth to the quartz.
Probably with Chlorite in the hexagonal prismatic habit crystals where the faden line is born.

Quartz from Boyacá, Colombia.

Quartz crystal looking like a very sharp arrowhead. Perhaps it may be a Muzo habit quartz due the cross section presents only four faces practically all along. The backside is translucent, the only smooth and the widest face.

Acquired in September 2017, in Medellin downtown.
