Herkimer Diamonds - Quartz Crystal 10mm
Listing is for one 14" strand of natural Herkimer Diamond quartz crystal beads.
These particular Herkimer's have black rutile inclusions, adding to the interest of this unique gemstone.
Beads are drilled from point to point and measure approximately 10mm each, with some variation. They are measuring 4-6mm wide.
Beads are temporarily strung with a tiny seed bead seperating each Herkimer to protect the natural points.
Herkimer Diamonds are composed of quartz, and are double-terminated crystals with termination points on either end of the rock. They are known to have 18 naturally occuring facets. Unlike real diamonds, Herkimer diamonds are mined above ground, making them more ethical and sustainable than mined diamonds.
