Just one glance at this whopping single Herkimer Diamond crystal requires an accompanying Wow!!! What an amazing specimen it is and for anyone who thought Herkimer Diamonds are always fairly petite, then this blows that notion out of the water! Measuring an enormous 8.0 x 7.3 x 7.0 cm, this single translucent Quartz crystal display many faces with mirror-smooth surfaces and a glassy, highly reflective lustre. An approximately 6 x 6 cm area on the base is covered with small colourless to sooty black Dolomite crystals to about 2 mm plus a tiny patch of micro-crystallised Pyrite.
