HERKIMER DIAMONDS
Herkimer, New York

From a Herkimer, New York State mine.  Double-terminated (points at both ends) diamond quartz crystals formed 500 million years ago under the Cambrian Sea (now NY State).  Water formed pockets in deep-sea rock.  Silica filled these "vugs" which grew these crystals, such a high quality quartz that the mine indeed calls these "diamonds".  You can go and mine for yourself too!

ROUGH GEMSTONE BLOCKS FOR LAPIDARY WORK






#R-490-1

Rainbow Calsilica lapidary block rough.
Measures 4-1/2" long x 2-1/2" wide x 1-7/8" tallest.
Valuable for cutting for cabochons for jewelry
Weight: 1 pound 3.5 ounces
$450

Rainbow calsilica is a man-made material created for the gemstone market from carbonate rock (aka calcite or powdered limestone) and plastic set in resin and colored by artificial coloring pigments. Since its first appearance in 2002, rainbow calsilica has been the subject of debate over whether it was naturally occurring or artificial, with some trying to pass it off as natural, claiming deposits were found in China, Brazil, Mexico and the Middle East. Rainbow calsilica gets its name from its layers of vibrant colors spanning the visible spectrum as well its composition of calcite and silica, found in quartz and a major component of sand. Cut into beads, cabochons and other jewelry-making components, rainbow calsilica is very desirable because of its bold, beautiful bands of colors.

Mineral Information    Calcium carbonate (calcite) plus silica, dye and plastic
Chemical Composition    Ca[CO3] SiO2
Color    blue, green, yellow, orange, red, brown, black
Hardness    3 to 4 (Mohs)
Specific Gravity    1.88 - 1.92
Refractive Index    1.59 - 1.607
Clean rainbow calsilica jewelry with a soft dry cloth. Wash with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth or soft brush. Dry thoroughly. Because it is a carbonate, rainbow calsilica is sensitive to acid and can be easily scratched. Do not apply harsh cleaning products that can include bleach and acid. Do not use ultrasonic cleaners or steamers
