Comment: I thought this was the most amazing thing. It is a strand of tiny Herkimer-like Quartz crystals, from Pakistan. They are all colorless, gemmy and sparkly. What amazes me most is how they were able to drill those holes. The strand is about 16 inches long. and each little crystal is about 5mm average. It comes with a simple clasp. I bought one for me and I might use the individual crystals as accents in other pieces of jewelry.

Minerals: Quartz (SiO2) Herkimer
