 The term ‘self-healed’ in this context refers to a quartz crystal that has healed or repaired itself after having endured fracturing or other damage due to disruptions such as tectonic movement or rapid temperature change during the formative growth phases.

 There are several sub-genres of self-healed quartz crystals, the most common of which being "regrown".  Some self-healed crystals may appear curved or otherwise deformed due to breakage and subsequent healing, similar to a broken bone that did not properly set as it healed.  Quartz crystals that display advanced-stage regrowth, often at the root where they were formerly attached to a cluster or wall of the pocket have been aptly named "Regrown Floaters".  These special crystals break off and are set free to float in the silica-rich solution of the hydrothermal pocket where they actually begin to grow again, leaving visible impressions of this process on the surface the stone. 

 Certain high-altitude localities in the Himalayas have proven to be unusually abundant in the this rare signature formation, highly sought-after by practitioners of the the healing arts.  Distinctive in form, these Himalayan self-healed crystals, whether bent, scarred, deformed or regrown in fascinating patterns are important tools for use in crystal healing practice.
