About conflict free Herkimer Diamonds
Herkimer Diamonds are very clear & pure double-terminated quartz crystals that are found only in upstate New York. These gemstones were named due to the fact that the first crystals were found in Herkimer county and had the raw appearance of diamond. Herkimer diamonds are a wonderful, inexpensive, naturally occurring conflict free alternative to traditional diamonds. They are truly hard to distinguish from a diamond as they are very hard, durable, and can scratch steel and glass. Herkimer diamonds will give you and yours a lifetime of enjoyment!As is the case for any crystal found in the Earth, a coincidence of appropriate conditions was responsible for the growth of Herkimer Diamonds. The environment must provide a crucible of some sort for the crystals to form in. The elements that are needed for the crystal’s formation must be present and in a state known as free dissociation. Like common table salt dissolved in water, the constituent elements must be moving freely within a confined area. Conditions must then occur which allow these elements to come back together in a regular geometric pattern that is dictated by the electrostatic forces at the atomic level. 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 these forces that ultimately shape the beautiful geometry of Herkimer Diamonds.
The host rock for Herkimer Diamonds is the Cambrian-age, Little Falls Dolostone. The Little Falls Dolostone was deposited about 500 million years ago and the Herkimer Diamonds formed in cavities within the dolostone. These cavities are frequently lined with drusy quartz crystals and often are coated with a tarry hydrocarbon.
