A row of raw crystals, also known as Herkimer Diamonds*, sit neatly together on an oxidized sterling silver chain. The faceted stones are accented with gold vermeil beads and have great sparkle. I love that this necklace can be worn either casual or dressy. It's a perfect simple everyday necklace yet makes a statement when worn in the evening with a black top or dress. The necklace is finished with a gold filled spring clasp. Wear with the "Crystal Quartz Point Earrings" and "Gold Vermeil Bead Oxidized Chain Necklace", sold separately. NECKLACE LENGTH: 16"

* 'Herkimer Diamonds' is the name given to the doubly terminated quartz crystals found in Herkimer County, New York and surrounding areas. These crystals have the typical hexagonal habit 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. Such doubly terminated crystals are VERY RARE and this is part of what makes Herkimer Diamonds so popular with mineral collectors." www.Geology.com

"The herkimers are so clear and the light catches the facets so beautifully! I love the oxidized chain with subtle gold accents, really pretty necklace. Thank you!"
