Herkimer Diamonds are not actually Diamonds, but naturally six-sided, double terminated Quartz crystals. Herkimer Diamonds are often so bright and shiny that they resemble Diamonds. The name comes from Herkimer, New York where these bright, double terminated crystals were originally found.
Herkimer Diamonds are called “attunement stones" and are useful in attuning you with others, your surroundings, or new energies. This makes Herkimer Diamonds a natural choice to assist in Reiki attunements and other types of energy work.
Working with Herkimer Diamonds is said to bring visions and an increase in psychic experiences. Great for meditation, Herkimer Diamonds can help one to experience true Divine Grace and bring Divine energy down into the Third-Eye and Crown Chakras. As such, Herkimers have the capacity to aid in astral travel and lucid dreaming.
Herkimer Diamonds help to relieve tensions, producing a peaceful calm. It is a stone of release and relaxation. It helps to clear the mind/body of unconscious fears and repressions, allowing for a complete and total relaxation and expansion of life energy.
The Herkimer Diamond can also be helpful to release and remove toxins from the body.
