A quality Herkimer Diamond with a generous size and beautiful shine.
Herkimer's are an amazing raw, quartz crystal specimen created entirely by Mother Nature. Crystals purchased from us are guaranteed to be in their natural form. That is to say, none have been touched or polished by anything more than a toothbrush. What you purchase is exactly how it came to us from the Earth. In fact, no one but us have held the crystals since they formed over 400 million years ago !
A tiny seed crystal set in the center really needs a loupe to be appreciated.
One small touch of black hydrocarbon is on one of the facets and is seen in the bottom photos. It in no way deters, but authenticates it is a raw quartz crystal.
Grading remains a very subjective yet important process when considering Herkimer Diamond quality. There is sometimes a fine line between each of the grades. When determining AA and A grades, size is an important consideration. Please rely on the photographs and descriptions of our Herkimer Diamonds to make your buying decisions; and be confident in knowing the descriptions of the crystals for sale are accurate and sincere.
This generously sized Herkimer Diamond is a quality crystal.
