A beautiful and rare Enhydro Herkimer Diamond with the signature 18 facets and is completely glass-clear, phenomenal! An Enhydro crystal refers to the drops of water or other fluid trapped in enclosed small bubbles during the formation of the crystal millions year ago. It is very rare to find a Herkimer Diamond that contains bubbles of fluid intact and of such a great visibility. A fenster window is formed on one facet of the crystal adding uniqueness to the piece.
The first discoveries were made in the Middleville village and in the city of Little Falls in the late 18th century and soon became widely recognized. The rougher faces are where it was hand mined from the rock. This is a complete 100% natural crystal with no polishing, the beautiful facets are naturally formed, unlike most of the fake Herkimer Diamonds in the market perfectly polished into 18 faces.
