Herkimer Diamonds are actually brilliant, rare water clear quartz crystals composed of silicon dioxide, hard enough to scratch glass. They are of a hexagonal structure and doubly terminated - (points on both ends).

Found in Dolomite limestone, this rock was buried millions of years ago. Water containing silicon seeped down into the rock and was trapped in pockets or cavities. Under tremendous heat and pressure these Herkimer crystals were formed. Weathering and erosion by glaciers and water have exposed the strata in Middleville, New York.
The name Herkimer Diamond came about because to the untrained eye the sparkling crystals from Herkimer County look like real diamonds. Additionally, the Mohawk Indians, native to this area, are known as "The People of the Crystals".
