Perched perfectly on a bit of matrix, this stunning "Herkimer Diamond" specimen deserves a place among the Mineral Masterpieces with its pristine, sharp edges and water-clear transparency. Note that most of the apparent "inclusions" are reflections of the matrix or of other crystal faces. This specimen formerly belonged to a European collector during the 19th century. Part of the allure of this piece stems from the contemplation of how the specimen made the trip across the Atlanticwho shipped it? At whose request?
