About)). Despite their diamond misnomer, Herkimers are six-sided, double-terminated quartz crystals and are relatively valueless. Unscrupulous jewelers during the Civil War tried to pass them off as REAL diamonds, but we think they have a charm of their own. Each mini Herk is set by hand and has it's own unique quirks: irregular facets, dark or light inclusions, and/or rough edges should be appreciated as special qualities in your uncut, unpolished stone. Details)). Made by hand in our Brooklyn studio. Materials: Herkimer diamonds (quartz) and 14k gold. Measurements: Stone measures 2-3mm. Band is 1mm. Inspiration)). These stones come from Herkimer, a town in upstate New York. You can go camping and mine your own. Color: pink
