||Quartz (Herkimer diamond) with prismatic voids
Ace of Diamonds mine, Herkimer
New York, United States
8.5X5.2 CM (cabinet)
A sizable, sharp and glassy pair of intergrown Herks that have far better than average clarity. These have some fine bubbles. anthraxolite flakes and tubes included within, but the best is the rare "crystal voids" that are cavities shaped exactly like a small doubly terminated quartz. Contacted on the rear and with a few chips but still displays well and the inclusions are easy to view.
