Double Herkimer Earrings * Dainty Herkimer Earrings * April Birthstone * Herkimer Diamond Necklace * Rough Gemstone * Raw Stone *
A Herkimer diamond is a unique, double-terminated type of quartz first discovered in Herkimer County, New York. It is not actually a diamond but it naturally forms multiple facets on its surface which give off tons of light. A Herkimer diamond crystal is a naturally colorless to gray crystal, often with black inclusions. Each Herkimer Diamond crystal is entirely unique, generally measuring approximately 1/2 inch long. The photos show the natural variation in the crystals, which can be close to clear to lightly smoky all the way to heavily marked with beautiful black inclusions (note: none of the crystals I have are completely clear).

Magnificent works of nature, found in the rock, having a diamond-like geometrical shape. Thus the name of “Herkimer Diamonds”.
•Each stone is one of a kind. They feature mostly colorless or tiny black inclusions.

More details :
– Genuine Herkimer Quartz Crystals, approx. 10mm. They’re called “diamonds” not only because of their clarity, but also because when they are found, they look like someone faceted them—but they are naturally “faceted” with double termination points (pointed at each end).
Waxy organic material along with quartz sand and pyrite was encased in rock made of dolomite and calcite. As sediment buried the rock and temperatures rose, crystals grew very slowly, resulting in quartz crystals of exceptional clarity.
