Quartz var. Herkimer Diamond on Calcite
A very rare matrix specimen of Quartz from Herkimer, perched atop calcite crystals. The quartz measures 5 cm across and floats up there, complete-all-around. And its undamaged. It is also not repaired, as most matrix specimens are. And most of those are just quartz on gray rock. I grew up in the Midwest and collected here as a kid, and I can assure you that one does not routinely see a Herkimer-type specimen like this.
