About Herkimer Diamonds
Herkimer Diamonds are beautiful double-terminated quartz crystals from Herkimer County, New York. Incredibly, these phenomenal gemstones are close to five hundred million years old. These crystals are magnificent works of nature. They appear as if precision cut by man and have a diamond-like geometrical shape therefore the name “Herkimer Diamond”.
Collectors believe the Herkimer Diamond rivals a true diamond. Their reasoning for this is a true diamond in the “rough” is exactly that, a rough appearing glass-like stone. The diamond must be painstakingly cut by man to give it smooth faces and a geometrical shape.
Herkimer Diamonds are not diamonds. A true diamond is one of the hardest elements scoring a ten on a one to ten hardness scale. Herkimer Diamonds are harder than all quartz crystals. They fall at about 7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale and as result they give the real diamond a close race.
