About Herkimer Diamonds:
True Herkimer Diamonds are only found in Herkimer County, New York. They formed over 500 million years ago in the Mohawk Valley, perhaps as a result of an ancient sea die-off. These crystals grow in pockets within the Little Falls Dolostone that forms our valley. They are double terminated crystals with 18 natural “faces”: 6 on each end and 6 around the “girdle” or middle of the crystal. This gives them the appearance of being faceted. Gem-grade Herkimer Diamonds are the clearest and brightest quartz in the world.
