Herkimer County, New York, U.S.A.
At least 6 Herkimer Diamonds intersect to form this hand specimen. The largest of the crystals has dimensions of 1.5 x 1.4 x 1.2" (3.8 x 3.6 x 3.0 cm) and shows only slight damage- the other crystals are in even better condition. All have excellent hexagonal prismatic form and are doubly-terminated. They are colorless and have a bright, vitreous luster, and are transparent and moderately to very clear. The largest crystal contains some rust inclusions that give it a yellow tinge. The cluster broke apart at one time, and has been glued back together.
