Late Summer 2018
Optically clear, sharp and clean Herkimer Diamond Quartz. This is a pair of fine transparent crystals joined together with a pleasing arrangement. In excellent condition as seen, these are so clear and reflective that they are hard to photograph. Classic habit for the famed Ace of Diamonds mine these Middleville NY area Quartz tend to have the brightest luster and clarity of all Herkimers.
A sizable, sharp and glassy pair of intergrown Herks that have far better than average clarity. These have some fine bubbles. anthraxolite flakes and tubes included within, but the best is the rare "crystal voids" that are cavities shaped exactly like a small doubly terminated quartz. Contacted on the rear and with a few chips but still displays well and the inclusions are easy to view.
