Length of Specimen: 4.5 inches
Width of Specimen: 2.5 inches
Depth of Specimen: 1.5 inches
Weight: 7+ oz.
Notes:

This dolomite rock holds a Herkimer crystal in a tight vug.  The vug has a coating of dark druse.  Several other vugs are present as well.
Although clarity is fair, the 17x10 mm Herkimer quartz is double terminated with good definition.
The mineral dolomite began as limestone and calcite rock. When the rock was still beneath the sea, magnesium was added. This addition of magnesium created the sedimentary rock of dolomite along with the pockets where the quartz crystals grew. These fluid filled pockets allowed the Herkimer Diamonds to form freely, giving them the opportunity to form terminations on both ends.  Some vugs are filled with many crystals, others are empty.
An attractive Herkimer crystal in dolomite rock.
