Herkimer Diamond Fire
Huge fire destroyed the Herkimer Diamond offices in Herkimer NY this past Saturday 10/14/17. They said they will rebuild. I hope this won’t effect the jewelry here using the Herkimer diamonds
I use to live in Utica NY but never went to visit the Mines. My ex worked there in construction and brought home a few nice pieces found in the ground. I still have one. Enjoy looking at it but its too large to really do anything with it.
it’s a shame that the Herkimer museum was housed in one of the destroyed areas. Dr. Renee Shevat, owner of the mines, said that business would go on as usual and that the campgrounds, mine tours would continue on as usual.
So sorry to hear about the fire. Really terrible. Going to the Mine was something I wanted to do for a while. Luckily, we went over the summer. It was a great time for the family.
The building that burned was built in 1859. It housed a lot of special items.
Glad to read that the mines were ok.
I am sorry to hear about the fire. There are several Herkimer mines where you can mine your own. They are located in the area. If you google mining for Herkimer diamonds, you should get a few places.
