Herkimer Diamonds are attunement stones, helping to attune and connect you to another person's energy, the energy of a place or spirit, or even the energy of a lesson or experience. This is thanks to their double terminations or "points" on either end. They are some of the most powerful crystal energy amplifiers on the planet, and are incredibly healing with pure life force energy. They are the most powerful of the entire quartz family. Like clear quartz, they are able to be programmed to hold a specific charge or attribute. They help to amplify the energy and properties of other stones, making them a good crystal to wear or keep on you as jewellery. Herkimers help to unblock stagnant energy, improve creativity, and encourage high achievement in all your pursuits. Herkimer Diamonds have a powerful connection to higher realms. Their double termination allows them to pull information from spirit and infuse your being with wisdom and knowledge through the other end. It acts as a direct conduit to higher information, places and spirits. They are a crystal that is desired and respected among all realms, especially angelic.
Herkimer Diamonds are brilliantly clear and transparent. They are double terminated quartz crystals, and often sparkle when they catch the light. They are primarily found in Herkimer County in New York, and are the hardest stone of the quartz family.
Herkimer Diamonds have such a powerful energy that can connect to other realms. Because of this, they are not recommended for children or animals, and may even make sensitive individuals feel loopy or disoriented if worn for long stretches of time. This is a powerful stone that should be used respectfully.
