A clear quality C grade Herkimer Diamond. Clarity is mostly excellent. A clear bubbly inclusion and healed fracture really reflected in the photos. A beautiful color veil sparks from here. Trapped inside the healed fracture is some iron oxide. Technically a golden healer, the gold color is quite pale in person. The photographs, taken with a macro lens, depict the color much darker. A bit of black hydrocarbon is trapped inside as well.
Externally there are many smooth facets and very minimal growth occurrences.
It is double terminated and with the naked eye, tips are clean. With a loupe, and the camera's macro lens, you can see they are not perfect.
A window facet is present and is seen in the top photo. A 'window facet' is recognized by a diamond-shaped facet or "window" located at an area where the facet lines should have come together in a point, but instead created an additional diamond shaped facet. A true window facet has a square diamond shape. Many times they are found with a rectangular shape. I have seen these called 'activation faces'. Those interested in the metaphysical would be interested to know these crystals are said to be powerful teachers and assists one in seeing into the essence of self.
It's unusual round shape, double terminations and great clarity make this a quality Herkimer Diamond. It has a great feel as well!
