Anthraxolite is decayed plant material that fossilized. This quartz formed millions of years ago in what was a shallow sea bed; now the middle of New York state. The anthraxolite in this gemstone could be the fossilized remnant of a stromatalite, an ancient ocean plant.
More than 95% of the Herkimer is water clear. The black anthraxolite gives a brilliant overall hue.
About Treasure Mountain Diamond Mine
We now own three different Herkimer Diamond properties in New York. One of these properties is the world famous Treasure Mountain Diamond Mine in Little Falls.

Both properties have extremely high quality classic Herkimer Diamonds. Finally, we own 160 acres in Fonda, which is producing amazing skeletal crystals in addition to drusy specimens. We always mine in an ecologically sound manner and all of our United States mines are, of course, conflict free. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

As is the case for any natural crystal a coincidence of appropriate condition are responsible for the growth of Herkimer Diamonds. First of all the environment must provide a crucible for the crystals to form in. In addition the elements for the crystal’s formation must be present and in a state of free dissociation. Like common table salt in water the constituent elements must be moving freely within the crucible. Conditions must then occur which allow these elements to come back together in a regular geometric pattern. Electrostatic forces at the atomic level create this pattern Atoms in this state act like little magnets and, like the north and south poles in magnets, they can only attach to each other in ways that are specifically dictated by these forces. It is as a result of these forces Herkimer Diamonds have their beautiful geometry.
The host rock for Herkimer Diamonds is the Cambrian-age, Little Falls Dolostone. Little Falls Dolostone is about 500 million years old. Herkimer Diamonds form in the cavities within the dolostone. These cavities frequently contain drusy quartz crystals and often have a coating of tarry hydrocarbon.
