Physical Characteristics

Herkimer Diamonds are doubly terminated free floating spontaneously formed elestial quartz clusters found in some clay deposits. How this environment relates to their formation is not yet understood. Each Herkimer consists of a matrix of perfectly formed quartz crystals. Clear and sparkling to the eye, many Herkimer’s contain rainbows, occasionally water can be found preserved in the matrix. More rarely small amounts of oil are found.
