Herkimer Diamonds




I can never get a photo that captures the incredible sparkle and clarity of these crystals that my brother dug for me. I delight in them every time I walk past my herb garden tree.

These are gorgeous, 3C! I've never seen anything like it outside of a shop!

Thanks, WJ, my brother got these by hard rock mining, something that is too much for me....

Hey, these are ice....... er... NICE. I love your close up pics (macro). If you're concerned with having pics of these great crystals being clearer (don't be), try different settings/lighting. They are pretty just the way they are. Thanks TC!!

If I am guessing right...this is Steve. Glad you like them, and thanks, but somehow, no matter what I have tried, they lose something in the translation. They look so much more like real diamonds and so much less like glass when you really see them. I am sure you are right that it is a lighting thing.
