Quartz (var. Herkimer Diamond)      Ace of Diamonds Mine, Middleville, New York.  Collected by Jerry Marchand, summer 2007.  Ex. Michael Walter Collection.  A 15 x 8.7 x 4.4 cm grouping with crystals to 7.5 cm each.  The quality is very high with no front side damage, only a couple tiny crystal contacts on edges.  Back is also very nice with only a couple contacts or chips.  Bases of crystals show minor inclusions of anthraxolite and some yellow staining.  Large crystals are more included while the smaller ones are quite clear.  This is a nice example of a reassembled cluster but does not take a good picture.  Finding good clusters like this at this type of price is a thing of the past.  $450
