Not really a diamond, the Herkimer Diamond is a variety of double terminated quartz that embody a high crystal energy. They are often extremely clear stones but many have black anthraxolite inclusions. It is named after the place it was first found - Herkimer County, New York USA. Not to be confused with Clear Quartz, Herkimer Diamond stones are generally brighter with very high vibration.
Herkimer Diamond is the most powerful of all Quartz Crystal. Being doubly terminated, it enhances its ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and to amplify it. This crystal is reportedly harder than all other Quartz, having a hardness of 7.5 on the Mohs scale of Hardness (diamond measures 10).
Extremely useful in healing environments where its high frequency helps to remove energy blockage or debris, Herkimer Diamond is excellent in stimulating healing and recovery. In the workplace, it brings positive attention and prosperity through great achievements. Place one on your working desk as it helps to create positive attitude and mindset.
Herkimer Diamond clears the chakras with its pure crystal light, opening the channels for spiritual energy to flow. It activates the Crown Chakra, which relates to spirituality, selflessness and empathy. It raises one's awareness of the world and enables one to connect with one's higher self.
