Lake County Diamonds (aka moon tears, Konocti Diamonds, Clearlake Diamonds) are a beta volcanic silicon dioxide, or quartz, NOT a carbon, as in regular diamonds. These stones are a 7.5 - 8 on the Moh's hardness scale, regular diamonds(carbon) are a 10 on the same scale. They are found in Lake County California, and occur in a narrow banded flow. Many people are under the impression they were part of a volcanic explosion, not true. The diamond flow is not near Mt Konocti. (free map to collecting area available in my shop) Our Lake County Diamonds make beautiful cut stones, and come in colors from clear, smokey, and lavender. The lavender variety being the most prized.
