Quartz, var. Herkimer Diamond

Specimen # 102339
Mineral: Quartz, var. Herkimer Diamond
Location: Ace of Diamonds Mine, Middleville, Herkimer Co., New York, USA
Size: 5.0 x 3.5 x 3.5 cm


A group of water-clear, brilliant quartz crystals (“Herkimer Diamonds”). The crystals are sharp, highly lustrous and have the internal play of colour one sees with Swarowski crystal glass. As with virtually all clusters from here, it was found in the clay pocket with the crystals in place but detached from one another, and has been repaired. This is an absolutely top quality one of these – a killer!
