Diamond quartz is a double-ended quartz crystal with a hexagonal growth pattern growing in rock chambers. It contains hydrocarbons and hematite. The hydrocarbons and hematite in the areas where they grow often create dark inclusions in these beauties. Anthraxolite is similar to black coal inside crystals. The rarity of the inclusions is yellow petroleum.
Diamond quartz is a great meditation stone. Those who believe in crystal healing believe that this type of crystal imparts very basic but physically superior energy. Diamond quartz crystals are similar to the Herkimer diamonds from Upstate New York. These stones are found in clear or smoky conditions. These originate in Baluchistan, Pakistan.
Herkimer Diamonds are beautiful quartz crystals found in Herkimer, New York. This particular type of quartz produces a double-ended crystal, which means it naturally has two sides. These rare gemstones are about five hundred million years old. The name "Herkimer Diamonds" comes from the fact that it is found on a geometrically shaped rock like a diamond. Herkimer diamonds contain liquid hydrocarbons, which are not found in other mined quartz crystals.
