The limestone host rock of this hand specimen contains 6 Herkimer Diamonds resting in hollows. These crystals do not exceed 0.5" (1.2") in length or diameter and all are in excellent condition, showing no visible damage. All have excellent doubly-terminated hexagonal prismatic form and are colorless and transparent. Their vitreous luster is standard for the specie, and their exceptional clarity is common for pieces from this area. The piece is hot-glued to a square acrylic base.
