|Quartz var. Herkimer Diamond
|Ace of Diamonds Mine, Middleville, Herkimer County, New York
|Two Herkimer Diamond crystals (water-clear, doubly-terminated quartz crystals) in a small vug in dolostone matrix. Matrix specimens are hard to collect because the crystals easily pop off the matrix. No damage, though two corners intersected the wall.
