This thumbnail specimen consists of a single, incomplete "Herkimer Diamond" Quartz crystal. Though the damage it incurred spreads over several faces, it is mostly intact and show excellent hexagonal prismatic form and double-termination. Its edges are very well-defined and its faces are very clean, possessing a bright vitreous luster. It is colorless and transparent, but is only dimly to moderately clear due to the presence of many inclusions and internal fractures. There is no host material of any sort present.
