This very large double terminated Herkimer quartz crystal is a fantastic specimen.
It is just barely reconstructed. One of the sharp termination tips chipped off and has been glued back into place. Black hydrocarbon is found here, and is probably what caused the weakness that made it chip. It is only seen with a loupe.
The majority of facets are clean and smooth. With it's great size, it fits and feels great in your hand.
A small 4 mm baby bridge crystal is found on one facet and can be seen in the pictures. The crystal is so clear, that it really reflected in the pictures.
Over 95% of the Herkimer is internally clean, so clarity is excellent. A healed fracture, seen in some of the pictures is present. This is not where the crystal has been reconstructed. A healed fracture occurred during the crystal's formation. Something caused a crack, or hesitation in growth. As the crystal continued growing it sealed itself. These crystals are considered powerful healers because of their ability to have healed themselves.
With it's large size and excellent clarity, this double terminated Herkimer quartz crystal specimen will not disappoint!
