Diamonds Are Forever

If you’re looking for the perfect souvenir of your visit to Diamond Beach, consider a Cape May Diamond. These diamond-like stones were first discovered by the Kechemeche Indians, who thought they held supernatural powers to bring good fortune. In fact, they are pure quartz crystals that start their journey to Cape May via the upper Delaware River. These pieces of quartz crystal are washed down and worn smooth by swift running waters, taking 200-mile journey that is said to span thousands of years. When polished and faceted, they even look like real diamonds. Find them along Sunset Beach in Cape May or take a shortcut and pick up a few of these good luck charms at Sunset Beach Gifts in Cape May.
