A raw, water clear Herkimer with a pocket of anthraxolite in the center. I believe it's trapped in a good sized, but ill formed seed crystal, maybe a phantom, but I can't get it to move.
Anthraxolite is the traditional name of the black material commonly found in New York Herkimer Diamond mines. It was thought to be a relative of anthracite (coal), decayed plant material that fossilized.
However, new evidence suggests it is a black hydrocarbon, a thick oily substance. The new theory suggests that hydrocarbons moved through the cracks and vugs along with dissolved quartz, salt and other minerals in the earth. At some point these fluids solidified. It is found both inside the quartz as well as surrounding them, suggesting it was present before, during and after the crystals formed.
This is a complete double terminated Herkimer; one tip is sharp, while the other has a geometric key mark. It shows in the pics much more than in person. Photographing crystals can be tricky at times. Some, even after many tries just don't photograph well, it's as though they are shy. Please rely on the descriptions as well as the photographs when viewing our pages.
A raw, water clear Herkimer crystal that will not disappoint !
