An extraordinary gem to add to your jewelry Herkimer Diamonds:True Herkimer Diamonds are only found in Herkimer County, New York. These amazing quartz crystals formed over 500 million years ago in the Mohawk Valley, perhaps as a result of an ancient sea die-off. Originally known as “Little Falls Diamonds” in the mineralogical community, these crystals grow in pockets within the Little Falls Dolostone that forms our valley. They are double terminated crystals with 18 natural “faces”: 6 on each end and 6 around the “girdle” or middle of the crystal. This gives them the appearance of being faceted. Gem-grade Herkimer Diamonds are the clearest and brightest quartz in the world.++++++++++++++++++++++++Herkimer Diamond Grading Scale (up to 1 inch crystals):Everyone has their own grading scale, and this is the one that we use. If you have any questions about the grading scale, please feel free to contact us!--Grade C: Broken pieces and chunks--Grade B: May have point missing, may or may not have nicks on the point tips. Cloudy to semi-clear with inclusions, contact marks--Grade A-: May have a point or tip missing, has key marks, contacts or interior inclusions. Still bright and clear,but just too many inclusions to consider it an A grade.--Grade A: May have small key marks, minor inclusions may also be present. Complete crystals, bright and clear.--Grade A+: Has a very minor inclusion or contact keeping it from being a AA--Grade AA: As close to perfect as it gets, double terminated and complete crystals. No major inclusions and no surface marks (contacts, etc).+++++++++++++++++++++++++About us:Fall Hill Bead and Gem opened in 2008 in Little Falls NY, in the heart of Herkimer Diamond country!
