Herkimer diamonds are actually a rare type of quartz crystals that double terminated (two pointed ends instead of just one) crystals that are only found in New York State.
The largest stone in this lariat contains a rare mineral called anthraxolite, which is fossilized plant material within the crystals, formed millions of years ago in the middle of New York state when it was a shallow sea bed. The inclusions are NOT flaws, they are a product of natural history and a wonder of this beautiful earth.
Five dainty yet sparkling clear Herkimers are joined together to a singular, larger Herkimer Diamond pendant that shows lots of interesting mineral inclusions at the very end. The procession of stones slips through the eternity loop at the opposite end of the lariat.
***Please note that no two crystals are the same so while yours will differ from the examples, it will still be just as amazing, see feedback for proof!
Available in sterling silver as well as 14K yellow. Gold fill at 18" (including the stones) is shown on the model. All finishes are nickel free, heirloom quality metals. Safe to wear every single day, even in water!
