For approximately the last six months, I have tried to live and breathe just about every moment of my spare time studying and working with gemstones – that’s pretty much the reason for the sad crickets on this, my beloved blog. My hands-down favorite art medium to work with is words, and I have been silent MUCH too long.
During this time, however, I have collected delicious morsels of my quirky life and the time has finally arrived for me to again indulge myself in this sweet heaven of sharing my written art with you.
I was blessed with the wonderful opportunity to visit my favorite Bed and Breakfast – The BellingerRose – in Herkimer for several days last week, and I will certainly be sharing with you my beautiful experiences there in coming posts. However, I just want to tell you that during my stay, I had a treadmill “incident” (feel free to envision the most ridiculous accident you’ve seen on America’s Funniest Videos or on Ridiculousness) and the palm of my right hand developed a TREMENDOUS throbbing blister and I was rather sore all over, so I was forced to mine all day in the hot sun with only my left hand (yeah, I’m tough…although, it still did hurt worse giving birth to my youngest on the bathroom floor with no pain-killers and only my four daughters under the age of ten to help me…).
In the end, I drove back home in the fire engine red rental SUV, our Herkimer Diamonds packed gently in cotton, and the sun setting romantically behind the looming cliffs and mountains. It was truly a “happy ending” in Herkimer, NY.
And so, what my happy ending ultimately is, is a happy beginning to Herkimer Diamonds Direct…
WELCOME to HERKIMER DIAMONDS DIRECT!!
The clearest and the most valuable of all quartz, Herkimer Diamonds are highly sought after and desired all over the world by collectors for their extremely powerful Metaphysical properties, as well as, for their extremely glittery personalities.
Perfect, water – clear, high sparkling Herkimer Diamonds are mined by us from the grey dolomite of the pristine Herkimer region, in upstate New York. Formed in the Cambrian Period, these double terminated (psst…that means that both ends are pointed, unlike other crystals, which have one flat end and one pointed end) brilliant stones are found in only one place on the ENTIRE PLANET – the Herkimer, New York area. It is impossible to find these anywhere else in the world.
We invite you to come explore and learn about these enchanting crystals which wield so much beauty and, some say, Metaphysical power.
Aside from us (we mine them, clean them and set them – all by hand) you will be the very first human to hold this half a BILLION year old gemstone.
From Mother Nature’s treasure chest DIRECTLY to your hands (well, except for a quick pit-stop in ours).
Again, WELCOME and ENJOY! In the coming weeks, we will be adding spectacular specimens we collect to our new site, HerkimerDiamondsDirect.com, where they will be available for sale.
