Herkimer Diamonds, 1 pack
What's so special about Herkimer Diamonds? A few things:
1). They are only found in one location in the world.
2). These are Crystal Diamonds, not Carbon Diamonds.
3). Unlike Carbon Diamonds (which are pretty much just grey rock when they are mined from the earth), Herkimer Diamonds are crystal clear and already faceted by Mother Nature.
4). They are double-terminated (having a point on each end).
5). Herkimers are formed in "vugs"...air pockets inside of rocks, and not necessarily attached to anything!
6). Often water pockets can be seen inside of an Herkimer Diamond, this is called an "enhydro crystal".
7). Herkimer Diamonds are 500 million years old.
8). Each Diamond has 18 facets.
9). They are nearly as hard as Carbon Diamonds.
9). and...my friends and I mined these Herkimer Diamonds ourselves!
All that and yet so affordable. I am holding one packful in my hand in one photo, and there is a packful by the ruler in the other photo. Mother Nature may have added little mineral deposits on some of them. Now go and amaze your family and friends with all your new-found knowledge!
a bit about Shipping...
It's an expense nobody likes to pay. And I won't be a hypocrite and raise prices on merch and say "Free Shipping!", because it's not. I'd gladly show up at your front door and hand you your order but that's not practical. It's a necessary expense, and we need to charge it. We are always looking for new ways to save on shipping, so please stay tuned. In the meantime, if the Shipping Rates we must charge are significantly higher than what the actual shipping cost, we're going to make it up to you with free items in your order. It's the least we can do...
This is a Final Sale
We had a thriving bead store in New England before retiring to northeast Tennessee, and instead of having a "Going Out of Business Sale" we brought the entire inventory with us. The beads and findings we offer are not seconds, but are the high-quality items from around the world that we carefuly chose for our store. Specializing in the fiber arts now, it's time to offer these treasures for sale, and we do so at a very low price. All sales of Books, Beads and Findings, Rocks, Minerals and Crystals are final, no returns.
