These Crystals come from Treasure Mountain in Little Falls, NY.

This location is special because rare magical Scepters form here. You dont see them so much in other locations, if at all. These range from thumbnail size to a couple inches.

Crystals from this location also form with unique inclusions, including black scepter rods & other formations. This mine is not open to the public, it is a private operation.

The work that goes into hand mining these is demanding on every level. The sorting & cleaning requires hours of painstaking work. Thus the prices these amazing crystals command. Most never see bulk quantities of this quality, the number of pockets one must mine requires an entire season of mining, if not more to acquire.

Herkimer Diamond Quartz Crystals come from a small area of Central Upstate NY, primarily from Herkimer County and the Middleville & Herkimer, Little Falls area, also St. Johnsville & Fonda. This is the 3rd hardest rock in the world, Dolostone / Limestone.

There are look alike crystals from other locations, Pakistan, Mexico, China, that also use the Herkimer Name. These are similar but not the same. The location of the crystals should be used instead of riding on the popularity of the much rarer quartz crystals from NY.
