Description

Herkimer diamonds are not actually diamonds, but double terminated quartz crystals discovered within exposed outcrops of dolomite in and around Herkimer County, New York. The ?diamond? in their name is due to both their clarity and natural faceting. Crystals possess double termination points and 18 total faces (six on each point, six around the center). When in the sun they sparkle like diamonds.
