★ Metaphysical Properties and Mystic Lore: Herkimer Diamonds are formed like embryos, growing in rock cavities filled with liquid. They do not grow up from a base like regular Quartz, but usually bear the umbilical mark of the larger rock they hung on to. They are usually glassy clear, sometimes with rainbows and inclusions of other minerals. They are double or triple terminated Quartz crystals, usually small in size and found only in Herkimer, in New York State, USA. Herkimer Diamonds are powerful amplifiers for the energies of other stones. They can help you to simply be, enhancing spontaneity. They are often called the Stone of Attunement, and can be used by healers to attune to clients. They can store information for later use and bring clarity, truth and inner wisdom. They initiate a deep inner transformation of self, and assist with dreams and inner vision. Herkimer Diamonds are powerful tools. They both receive and transmit energy with their natural double terminated configuration. All Herkimers have an incredible energy and are a powerful attunement stone – especially the smaller, exceptionally clear stones. The energy of a Herkimer is a fantastic tool for all psychic and spiritual work, including telepathy, clairvoyance, channeling, trance channeling, meditation and communication with your Higher Self and Spirit Guides. Herkimer Diamonds energize, enliven and promote creativity. Herkimers clear all Chakras and open channels for spiritual energy to flow.

There are other similar Quartz crystals coming out of locations such as Pakistan (Pakimer Diamonds) and Arkansas (Arkimer Diamonds). To be a true Herkimer Diamond it must come from Herkimer, New York.
