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. The crystals are magnificent works of nature which appear as if precision cut by man and having a diamond-like geometrical shape; thus, the name “Herkimer Diamonds”.
Many collectors believe the Herkimer diamond should rival 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 is painstakingly cut by man to give it smooth faces and a geometrical shape.
In fact, 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 they therefore challenge real diamonds to a close race.
