Herkimer area “Diamond” Mining Campout
Friday April 21- Sunday April 23
Did You Know?
Geologists discovered exposed dolostone in Herkimer County outcroppings and began mining there, leading to the “Herkimer diamond” moniker. … The geologic history of these crystals began about 500 million years ago in a shallow sea which was receiving sediments from the ancient Adirondak Mountains to the north.
What are Herkimer Diamonds?
“Herkimer Diamonds” is the name given to the doubly terminated quartz crystals found in Herkimer County, New York and surrounding areas. Examples of these crystals are shown in the photos on this page. Note that these crystals have the typical hexagonal habit of quartz; however, instead of having a termination on one end they are doubly terminated. This is a result of the crystals growing with very little or no contact with their host rock. Such doubly terminated crystals are very rare, and this is part of what makes Herkimer Diamonds so popular with mineral collectors.
