There is one vug (cavity) with three Herkimer Diamonds and one smaller with just one.
The sphere is of outstanding workmanship. It is very rare to find a chunk of matrix with Herkimer Diamonds in vugs that survive the cutting and polishing processes of the spheremaking. The matrix is nondescript although it has a nice polish and several other vugs shallow with sparkly crystals. A couple of sections are rough since, Dale, did not want to further grind the ball and risk loosening the Herkimer Diamonds. A dark circular section at some of the photos is just a shadow.
