Herkimer Diamond on Matrix

$95.00

“Herkimer Diamonds” of New Yourk is a doubly terminated quartz (SiO2) crystal in it’s original form as faceted by nature. The best crystals (1/4″-1″ in size) with high brilliance, clarity and surface luster approach a real diamond in appearance. Having been originally found in Little Falls, Herkimer County, NY, determined the name. Today they can be found over a ten by fifty mile belt covering Herkimer, Fulton, and Montgomery counties. The best fee-collecting areas are located in Fonda, St. Johnsville and Middleville, N.Y. The best specimens are found on predictable levels in pockets of dolomitic limestone rock. Loose crystals can sifted from the top soil overburden in many areas. Loose crystals in their natural form are readily adaptable to jewelry making. Crystals still attached to the rock matrix are the most desired by the pure collector throughout the entire world.
