About the stone
Herkimer Diamond is the birth stone for April.
Herkimer Diamonds are five hundred million years old.
The black substance seen in some Herkimer Diamonds is traditionally called Anthraxolite. Newer theories suggest it's a hydrocarbon. Anthraxolite is a relative of anthracite (coal). It is actually decayed plant material that fossilized.
Herkimer diamonds are not actually diamonds, but double-terminated quartz crystals discovered within exposed outcrops of dolomite in and around Herkimer County, New York and the Mohawk River Valley.
Only those mined in Herkimer County can be given the name Herkimer Diamond.
The "diamond" in their name is due to both their clarity and natural faceting.
Herkimer Diamonds are the most powerful of all the quartz crystals as they are extremely useful in healing environments.
Average size - At widest points including bale 1.9cm approx, Herkimer Diamond 1cm x 0.6cm approx.
Please be aware that as our stone jewellery is handmade and the stones are natural, dimensions and stone colours may vary slightly.
