This unusually dark smoky “Herkimer Diamond” comes from upstate New York.
These quartz crystals are sometimes mistaken for diamonds, because the tiny ones are brilliantly clear with lustrous glossy facets.
In all sizes, they have an “adamantine” finish, very diamond-like!
As the crystals grow larger, even up to 7 or 8 pounds, they acquire a tan tint.
This one is particularly well colored, with many shimmering internal rainbows.
Great internal clarity, 4.5 inch length.
Brilliant glossy surfaces.
