Patrick Lamberson walking the gulleys/gulches at Paradise Falls looking for Herkimer Diamond quartz crystals.  Paradise Falls is a private Herkimer Diamond locality located in Middleville, NY, U.S.A.  There was flooding days before this video was taken, see what minerals and/or crystals he finds!

Rockhounding a rain gullet after heavy rains at Paradise Falls Herkimer Diamond locality in Middleville, NY, U.S.A.  Many of these crystals are alluvial, and wash out of the dirt after rainy weather.  Not many(if any) Herkimer Diamond localities have such abundant surface finds as Paradise Falls does.

Here’s a slide show of McAdoo/Tresckow quartz crystal specimens, as well as some shots of crystal collecting the locality.  McAdoo is just south of Hazleton, Pennsylvania, and quartz crystals of up to 20+ LBS can be found in the abandoned strippin pit there, which locals nicknamed The Echo.
