Exploring the Diamond Mines of Herkimer, New York

Searching high and low for elusive gem stones, students in all three grades of SAS Middle School visited the Herkimer Diamond Mines on Wednesday, September 26th. Each grade was given a tour of the facility and an introduction to the quartz-based "Herkimer Diamond." Students enjoyed the fun, educational trip and many of them brought home multiple samples. They look forward to future visits with us—and so do we! Go ATOMS!
