Rough Herkimer Diamond Ring Size 8.5 925-Sterling Silver
Herkimer Diamonds are not diamonds at all! In fact, they are clear, double-terminated (pointed on both ends) QUARTZ crystals found hosted in the dolostone layers of Herkimer County, New York. Although double-terminated quartz can occur in many places across the globe, only those found in Herkimer County can be called "Herkimer Diamonds," and few other localities produce examples pristine enough to rival natural diamonds as a gemstone. Herkimer Diamonds have crystal clarity and a natural crystal habit that appears faceted because of the 18 crystal faces visible in most specimens. These characteristics result in a natural sparkle that can only be obtained in the faceted diamonds of jewelry stores through time-consuming work. In addition, Herkimer Diamonds have a hardness of 7 out of 10 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, making them extremely durable for everyday wear and tear. In addition to this resistance to scratching, Herkimer Diamonds do not break or chip as easily as diamonds that have THREE planes of cleavage to break along. All in all, Herkimers outshine diamonds in appearance.
