This bright and clear Herkimer diamond cluster measures approximately 3/4" by 1/2". It weighs 2 grams. This specimen formation is made up of two larger crystals with a small crystal in the center. Any position this is placed in is very attractive, as all angles are appealing. There are some rough, black carbon deposits on the outside of the two larger crystals, but they remain crystal clear. Both the largest and smallest crystal have a tiny bubble inclusion. This would make a beautiful pendant or display piece, as it can be positioned several ways.
