Raw gemstones seem closer to nature, less marred by any kind of human intervention, making their beauty somehow more honest and complete. Raw gemstones also strongly evoke a sense of connection to our past. Their rough shape helps them retain some of their true nature, and is a testimony of their long journey to your jewelry box. Mixing nostalgia with modernity and modesty with extravagance, raw gemstones are coming back into the spotlight which they never completely left.

Have you heard of Herkimar diamonds?
The Herkimer Diamonds are over 500 million years old and are only to be found by the Mohawk River in Herkimer County upstate New York. Here lived the Mohawk Indians where they accidentally found the diamond, which is actually a quartz crystal. Since it has two points and 18 facets, regardless of size, it was seen as magical due to it's natural rareness.
Note that these crystals have the typical hexagonal form 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.
Doubly terminated crystals are very rare. This is what makes "Herkimer diamonds" amazing creations of nature. They are very popular with mineral collectors. They are a 7 on the Mohs scale for hardness.
Visit the Mines !
By the Mohawk River, you find the Herkimer Diamond Mines KOA Resort, owned by Renee Shevan - the only female miner in the world. The resort is open to the public and receives visitors from all over the world who hope to find the rare crystal themselves.
