What Are HERKIMER Diamonds?
Herkimer Diamonds (also known as Herkimer Quartz) are double terminated (pointed at both sides) quartz that were discovered in and around Herkimer County, New York, USA in the 18th century. Although they are not actually diamonds these crystals have exceptional clarity and along with their natural faceting are what give them the “diamond” name. Most Herkimer Diamonds take on the typical hexagonal habit of quartz; however, instead of having termination on just one end (like a typical diamond) they are double terminated. This is a result of the crystals growing with very little or no contact with their host rock. Double terminated diamonds are extremely rare which makes Herkimer Diamonds amazing creations of nature and very popular among mineral and crystal collectors.
