Crystal Feature

Herkimer Diamond

If I need whatever crystal I am wearing to resonate at a higher frequency, I always pair it with a Herkimer Diamond. Many days it won’t let me leave the house without it. It seems to know when I’m going to have a challenging day and insists on coming.

Herkimer Quartz “Diamonds” are the high energy seekers of the crystal world. Unusually translucent, with a brilliant sparkle, they manifest pure, solid light and are powerful amplifiers of spiritual energy. As perfect conduits of the Universal Life Force, they are exceptional healing crystals used in meditations, dream and vision work, and advanced spiritual work. It stimulates psychic abilities and also cleanses and opens the chakras for a strong clear flow of spiritual energy. Herkimer Diamonds are also a strong crystal for clearing geopathic stress and restoring the Earth’s natural harmonious grid flow.

They are the most powerful of all Quartz crystals. Being double terminated, they have the ability to not only transmit their energies but to receive spiritual energy and amplify and focus it intently. They are reportedly harder than all other Quartz, giving them the strength and durability to handle difficult challenges beyond the scope of other Quartz crystals. What they lack in physical size, they more than make up for in spirit energy. This mineral owes its name to Herkimer County, New York, USA, the principal place where they are found.

The Herkimer Diamond is an “attunement stone,” useful for attuning to another person, group, environment or energy/frequency. It is particularly beneficial to use before the “laying-on-of-stones” or other healing situations, or when the practitioner and subject are not well acquainted. It is an exceptional crystal for linking people together. For those who have to be apart, the two Herkimer’s should be held simultaneously as one at first, then upon parting, each person should retain one of the stones to connect with the energy of the other person, a group or environment. If I had to choose just one crystal (please don’t make me….) it would have to be Herkimer Diamond. I wear it nearly every day and feel a bit lost if it’s not on me.
