Herkimer Quartz ‘Diamonds’ are a variety of Quartz crystal found in and around Herkimer, New York, USA. Their crystal system is hexagonal (trigonal). They are silicon dioxide crystals with a hardness of about 7.5. This is harder than most other Quartz varieties, and may be because Herkimers are formed in a hard rock matrix. Herkimer ‘Diamonds’ are so named because of their form-the short, small, stubby double-terminated shapes and the glossy surfaces make them superficially resemble Diamond crystals. Herkimers can be clear or included. Inclusions are often black carbon deposits.
