Meaning of the Stone: Herkimer Diamonds
Herkimer Diamonds are beautiful & powerful
high vibration crystals.
They are the most
optical, clear, & lustrous
crystals in the entire world.
These amazing crystals get their nickname "diamond" quartz as they are similar in shape, clarity, and sparkle to real diamonds upon first look. It is most sought in the world by collectors, jewelers, and has metaphysical properties. This mineral owes its name to Herkimer County, New York, USA, the principal place where it is found.
Formed 450 - 500 million years ago in small pockets of dolostone, dolomite limestone, and bedrock. The small, double-terminated crystals are short and stubby, formed in a hard rock matrix giving them their strength.
Taking you to the highest spiritual vibration
possible within the physical realm.
These crystals naturally form with 18 facets and are double terminated (points at both ends). They have a 7.5 on the Mohs scale of Hardness, with 10 being the Hardest (real diamonds). Herkimer Diamonds are the most powerful of all Quartz crystals. Being doubly terminated, they have the ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and to amplify and focus.
