Herkimer diamond is a generic name for double-terminated quartz crystals (where crystal structure forms on both ends), which were first discovered in exposed outcrops of dolostone at Little Falls in Herkimer County, New York and the Mohawk River Valley. They became largely recognized after workmen discovered them in large quantities while cutting into the Mohawk River Valley dolostone in the late 18th century. Geologists discovered exposed dolostone in Herkimer County and began mining there. The popularity of mining for double-terminated quartz in the Herkimer County outcroppings is what led to the name, Herkimer diamonds.
Please note that due to the nature of vintage materials, slight variations in tone and color may occur.
Due to the aberrant nature of minerals, each piece of gem/mineral is unique.
