Re: How to drill holes in small Herkimer Diamonds

Christa, Herkimer diamonds are very tricky to work with, I have faceted several and have found them to be under internal stress and prone to fracture when stressed.
I would suggest wire wrap or other approaches, but since I never tried to drill one it might work. Good luck. KOR John L
