A single Herkimer Diamond Quartz crystal rests on the brown limestone base of this specimen. The crystal has dimensions of about 0.6 x 0.4 x 0.4" (1.5 x 1.0 x 1.0 cm) and is in fair condition, as many of its edges are chipped. Its hexagonal prismatic form is good, though slightly misshapen because of two partly intersecting crystals that were removed. It is colorless, transparent and quite clear, containing only a few internal fractures, and has the standard vitreous luster.
