Item details

• ITEM: Quite literally, a "diamond in the rough" fresh from Mother Earth's magical garden of gemstones!

♥ We love this quartz crystal because it is a genuine Herkimer obtained directly from "smiling Joe" the hard-working miner in Herkimer NY. "Herkimer Diamonds" are quartz crystals that have a high quality glow to them kind of like a diamond, hence the nic-name. Other double-terminated crystals that hail from elsewhere ("Pakimers" from Pakistan & "Cherkimers" from China) usually pale in comparison to the bona fide & beloved Herks.


• PRICE: $48.00 OBO!


• SIZE: 34x24x9 mm pendant

• SHAPE: intuitive

• DRILLED: f-b 3.5mm

• FINISHING: natural face with chiseled & knapped back and sides

• CLOSE-UP INSPECTION: crystals may have natural bruising & craters on exterior, yellow tinge, minor inclusions but nothing detrimental or negatively distracting from their beauty

• COLOR: natural matte gray matrix

• TREATMENTS/ENHANCEMENTS: minor cosmetic stabilization-anchored for durability

• OVERALL GRADE: All rough & wild cut material comes with inherent imperfections and non-symmetrical shapes, which in effect is part of what adds to their rugged untamed style and as such the material is not necessarily sub-standard. Perfection grading is not performed on any stones classified as “wild”.

• FYI: Special occasion use is recommended.

NOTE: Actual item sold is depicted in the photograph unless otherwise stated.
