Two intersecting Herkimer Diamonds make up this cabinet specimen. One crystal is much larger than the other, having dimensions of 2.6 x 2.0 x 1.6" (6.7 x 5.0 x 4.0 cm), and both are in very good condition, showing only a small amount of damage. Their hexagonal prismatic form is very good, and both show double-termination. They are colorless, transparent and have the standard vitreous luster. Their clarity is spoiled by the presence of many internal fractures, flaws and inclusions, and at one point the two were separated and then reattached with a clear glue. A few dull, pale brown dolomite crystals are attached in one spot.
