Herkimer Diamonds are double terminated quartz that are found in Herkimer, NY as well as other places in the US. Double terminated means that the quartz crystal comes to a point at each end. Each herkimer diamond has 18 facets which helps to create a beautiful luster. Since each herkimer diamond is found naturally no two will ever be the same which allows for a truly unique piece. This necklace comes in the hammered texture only.
