Hello everyone, welcome back to Crystal Thursday. Today’s topic is the gorgeous Herkimer Diamond. The original posting for this very high energy crystal was back on August 8th of 2017.
The Herkimer Diamond is a clear double terminated Quartz crystal and the most powerful of all Quartz Crystals. Now double terminated crystals can be found all over the world, so one must ask what makes a Herkimer Diamond so special. The answer to that question is they get the name from where they’re found; and that is only in Herkimer County, New York.
Visually they are crystal clear. Generally smallish, although I have seen specimens of impressive size. Occasionally some pieces, like the one above, have small inclusions or water pockets within them. Herkimer Diamonds were discovered in the late 18th century by geologists digging Dolomite in the Mowhawk River Valley in Herkimer County New York. This crystal resonates very powerfully with the Crown and Third Eye Chakras and is a strong 7.5 on the Mohs scale.
Being Quartz the Herkimer Diamond has all the qualities of the Quartz family, only super charged. This is a very high energy crystal. It fine tunes the aura as well as the etheric, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies, creating a perfect balance within the body. It has a very high vibrational energy, is a powerful amplifier of spiritual energy and is a conduit of life force energy. It’s pure love, light, transformation, harmony and is a wonderful crystal for bringing people together.
Because it’s double terminated it’s both a transmitter and receiver of spiritual energy. As an amplifier it can increase the energy of other crystals and strengthen both clairvoyant and clairaudient ability. It is a great crystal to meditate with and to use for dream work.
From a healing perspective I can honestly attest that this crystal is amazing! The Herkimer Diamond eases tension and is fantastic for pain relief. I hurt my knee recently and was in terrible pain. I don’t have insurance and don’t care for allopathic medicine so there was no going to the doctor. I got one of my Herkimer Diamonds and within 5 minutes of being in my energy field, my knee did not hurt anymore. This crystal also pulls toxins out of you, sometimes dramatically!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this brief look at Herkimer Diamonds. If the qualities of this stone resonate with you I encourage you to purchase a piece and work with it. Keep in mind I am not a doctor and sharing the healing qualities of this stone is in no way giving medical advice. Working with it can help but if you are ill see your medical practitioner of choice.
Blessed Be ❤ Sharon
