The Hickory Hill Diamond Mine in Fonda, NY produces many beautiful, clear, Herkimer diamonds, and this one is a wonderful example. It is a superb Herkimer diamonds, double terminated and amazingly water clear. The crystal has a brilliant diamond-like luster, and is sharply formed with six sides, razor-sharp edges, and pristine tips at the terminations. Inside the crystal are a few inclusions of a black, coal-like fossil material called anthraxolite. I collected this specimen myself, back in the mid-1990s.
