Hickory Hill Diamond Diggings, Fonda, N.Y.

Minerals: Flawless double terminated quartz crystals (Herkimer Diamonds)

Description: These mines are famous for water-clear, Herkimer diamonds (double terminated quartz crystals.) Pockets can contain hundreds of these beautiful crystals often in clusters and occasionally containing water or bubble inclusions. Last year while they were digging a pit for an outhouse they dug up grapefruit sized crystals just in the topsoil! This site offers hard rock collecting for those that have the energy. For the less energetic you can screen through the soil and find crystals that have weathered from the rock.

Bring: Screens, hand tools, prybars, sledge hammers, insect repellent.

Only open three weekends a year (Memorial Day, July Fourth, and Labor Day.)

My first time mining, My Daughter and I Went to Crystal Cove and found a mother load of diamonds,How sweet,first time lucky? No , If you want to try a little of every type of mining, pounding ledges, siffting, or just looking on the ground. They are here for sure. Also very friendly people ! Will return again and again...
