Precise locality for "Herkimer Diamond" style quartz containing hydrocarbon inclusions.
The locality produces well-developed doubly terminated quartz crystals that have many small chambers containing contrasting yellow petroleum oil fluid inclusions. Most of the fluid inclusion chambers contain air bubbles floating upward or downward on moving the crystal in various directions.
The yellow fluid inclusion chambers are fluorescent under both SW and LW light.
