OKN-851

OKN-851      Herkimer Diamond    Herkimer Diamond Mines and Resort, Middleville, New York.  Collected by Jay Walter, October 29, 2014.  3.8 x 3.2 x 2.8 cm crystal with moderate inclusions and a base contact from another crystal.  No damage.  The really weird thing is visible in the second image.  There is a frosted contact that looks just like a pinnicoid termination!  Really strange (I have to assume it is a natural contact... it can't possibly be a face!), I've never seen this in any of the tens of thousands of Herkimer diamonds I have inspected.  A nice aesthetic and an unusual piece.  $200

OKN-853

OKN-853      Herkimer Diamond    Herkimer Diamond Mines and Resort, Middleville, New York.  Collected by Jay Walter, October 29, 2014.  Three crystals in a small reconstructed group measuring 5.5 x 4 x 3.4 cm with the largest crystal being 4.7 cm.  The largest crystal is moderately included while the two smaller ones are very clear.  Another great piece that sits beautifully several different ways, is damage free and better in-hand.  A top quality miniature!  $350

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKN-854

OKN-8454      Herkimer Diamond    Herkimer Diamond Mines and Resort, Middleville, New York.  Collected by Jay Walter, October 29, 2014.  This is one of the finest from this recently acquired material.  Approximately ten crystals, the largest three in parallel growth, are reconstructed into this tight cluster that measures 6.8 x 6.5 x 6.3 cm.  A couple micro abrasions on what I'd call the base.  The two biggest crystals look cloudy in the images but they are actually quite good and the other crystals are excellent for clarity.  Exceptional group.  $700
