What are Herkimer Diamonds?
Herkimer Diamonds are beautiful double-terminated quartz crystals found in Herkimer, New York.  Incredibly, these phenomenal gemstones are close to five hundred million years old.  The crystals are magnificent works of nature, found in the rock, having a diamond-like geometrical shape.  Thus, the name recognition of “Herkimer Diamonds”.

What are the black inclusions in Herkimer Diamonds?
Healed fractures are found in about 75 percent of Herkimer quartz crystals. Some inclusions contain a black hydrocarbon called anthraxolite. It is usually seen as black, dull or shiny fragments or smears within a crystal, or inclusion.

How were Herkimer Diamonds formed?
The bedrock in which the quartz crystal are found began forming approximately half a billion years ago in a shallow Cambrian Sea that lapped against the southern shores of the ancestral Adirondack Mountains.  The sediments (calcium magnesium carbonate) which slowly accumulated beneath the sea’s salty waters were gradually compacted under the weight of thousands of feet of additional sediments, forming the rock strata Dolostone.  While still beneath the sea, water seeped through the pores of the rock often creating “vugs” by dissolving part of the rock.
