These are jewelry quality, water clear, Herkimer diamond double-terminated petite quartz crystals. These have been hand selected by me from thousands of excellent crystals. These are the best of the best I could find! They are so sweet and cute! I never get tired of looking at these miniature crystals! I am amazed that these crystals can form so perfectly in nature.
Double-terminated crystals form in solution as free-floating crystals in pockets of clay. There is no rock for the crystal to attach to thus allowing the crystal to terminate on both ends as the solution slowly evaporates. Then, millions of years on, an enterprising miner digs them up!
These crystals have minimal minor inclusions(if any) and are all water clear. Inclusions are natural phenomenon. I picked crystals that will look clean and fabulous once made into your beautiful creations.
"Herkimer diamond" is a coined phrase that initially described double-terminated quartz crystals from the Herkimer, NY area. However, quartz is quartz, and these little beauties grow in more than just one area of the world. My crystals are not from New York but are every bit as beautiful.
Pictures are representative of the quality.
Crystals are purchased singly and chosen by me. You may let me know your project and I will endeavor to select the most appropriate crystals.

Returns & exchanges
Returns: I can accept returns if they are shipped back within 48 hours of delivery by the USPS but please give me a courtesy email that you are doing so. Additionally, the item must not be altered or damaged in any way--I hope you understand. I also ask that you properly insure and track any return, including that information in your courtesy email. Once I have determined the return is in the condition that I shipped it out to you, I will refund the purchase price minus any processing fees that aren't refundable to me and a $3.00 restocking fee which covers my packaging.
My jewelry features glass beads that are properly annealed for durability. That said, glass can break if dropped on a hard surface. I have no warranty for accidents or otherwise; however, if your jewelry should need a repair, please contact me. We can work out if a repair is possible and the cost of doing so. I will strive to be as fair as possible to the both of us.
