"Diamonds" in the Rough
This week, Nan's Favorite Pick- "Diamonds" in the Rough earrings
Herkimer "diamonds" are actually Quartz crystals mined in only a handful of places on earth. The greatest distinction from other clear quartz crystals is that this little gem grows naturally with two pointed ends, otherwise known as double terminated. They are also named after a town in Herkimer, New York where their rare qualities were first discovered.
I personally hand pick each crystal directly from the family and owner-operators of the Original Herkimer Mines. Each crystal is distinct and one of a kind- in its rough form. Similar to a diamond, it is graded and I only select the highest quality and clearest "diamonds" which is AAA grade and higher.
