a natural embodiment of purity and light, the herkimer diamond, or double terminated quartz, is the perfect april birthstone keepsake alternative to diamonds from ethically umbrous or unknown origins.  inlaid with gorgeous streaks of mystic black carbon, these ice-like, naturally faceted herkimer crystals make for stunning birthstone jewelry and accessories.

herkimer diamonds, which are significantly more rare than true diamonds, are exclusively mined from one place, and one place only -  herkimer, new york on the north american continent.  our herkimer diamond crystals are ethically extracted from the 500 million year old dolostone (dolomite + limestone) in this very region.  where else?
