Quartz -Black stem / phantom Herkimer
Benchmark Quarry, St. Johnsville, Montgomery County
New York, United States
2.1 x 1.4 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $350
Late Summer 2018

A super fine thumbnail from the one time find (a single pocket) at the Benchmark quarry that produced these remarkable phantoms. The Quartz has the typical form of a Herkimer Diamond, but there is a small black stem that extends into the center of the transparent head. The stem is hexagonal and clearly seen inside the clear Quartz. Flawless condition and very sharp, this is even more clear and lustrous in person. A classic USA thumbnail, this like every other piece was collected by Bill Hladysz and had been in his collection.
