This video is of Jason roaming the grounds at Paradise Falls in Middleville, NY after a major flood.   He finds a few nice Herkimer Diamonds right on the surface.  Surface finds like these are rare in the Herkimer District, most crystals in the area are encased in hard dolomitic limestone.  Heavy equipment and power tools are usually required to extract these crystals.  Finding them without hard work is a blessing.  View many more Herkimer Diamond mining videos at
