Re: Re: Pele's Diamonds
I had checked Mindat.org to see if they listed these at all. There are numerous items coined as being diamonds that are not, Herkimer for one, but the Pele is not listed. Again my guess is that they are quartz eroded out of their host material.
If you believe in folklore than I guess the best thing would be for me to take them back to Hawaii and give them a toss into the volcano or Pele may strike me down.
