Who doesn't love tiny, perfect minis? From puppies and kittens to the individual flowers of lilac or Queen Anne's Lace?
Mini Herkimer Diamond clusters are perfect creations of wonder and delight! The large ones are spectacular, but something about the minute details and symmetry of the minis causes us to pause and reflect on Nature's intricate little sculptures we are holding in our hands.
We treat them gently, carefully rinsing them and wrapping them in lengths of fabric to keep them safe on the ride home. But as it turns out, these little formations are tough and stronger than their giant counterparts. The big ones tend to separate during their 450 million + years in the earth...or on the ride home. It is rare a mini is reassembled. The balance and design are such that the bond between the crystals is more permanent and lasting. This is not to say that you can't snap them apart! But, oh, please don't.
Here are a few of our favorites. Some of them are smaller than your little fingernail. To see them all, click here https://ofcoinscrystals.com/collections/mini-clusters
