April has two birthstones: genuine diamond and the more budget friendly clear quartz. There are many types of clear quartz but the most famous is the Herkimer "diamond" which is a double terminated quartz crystal. The "diamond" in their name is due to their incredible clarity and natural faceting. All of our Herkimer diamonds are AAA and mined right in Herkimer county, NY. Herkimer diamonds are said to strengthen the mind, vitalize energy, and provide purifying power, soothing the soul and warding off evil spirits.
For products in the collection with multiple stone options, hover over the clear quartz or Herkimer diamond swatch to view the that option or visit the product page and select clear quartz or Herkimer diamond from the gemstone menu.
