Herkimer Diamonds Embody Pure Energy...
Powerful High Vibration Crystals, Boost Psychic Abilities
Herkimer Diamond
Herkimer Diamond
Herkimer Diamonds are ascension stones, and they will take you to the highest spiritual vibration possible while still being in your physical body.

These crystals have powerful metaphysical properties and are strong stones to aid astral travel, as they help to connect the astral plane to the physical plane.

They are beautiful and powerful high vibration crystals, that boost clairvoyant and clairaudient abilities.

They act as powerful amplifiers when you are using them with a small stone.

What Are They... Where Are They From?
The meaning of the name Herkimer Diamond, relates to the location where they are where they were first found at Herkimer, New York USA.

They are not really diamonds but are a variety of double terminated quartz that embody a high crystal energy. Herkimers are often extremely clear stones but many have black anthraxolite inclusions.

Some even have water inclusions within them, which aid the healing of emotional problems. There have been similar double terminated quartz crystal stones that have since been found at other locations.

Although they really shouldn't be called 'Herkimer Diamonds', often they are sold under this name, or as Arkimer Diamonds, so be aware.

They look quite similar to other Clear Quartz, but they are generally brighter, and they have a very high vibration. There are also some stones selling now that are labeled Herkimer Quartz.

Often the stones labeled like this look similar, in that they are bright clear double terminated quartz, but many come from the Himalayan Mountains in China, so you need to be careful what you buy.

Why Would You Use It
Herkimer's have a distinct and harmonious energy, that is extremely valuable when used as a tool in a healing environment, and are very useful when utilized with small stones.

There are many rare crystals that have a high vibration, but often the specimens you obtain are very tiny stones.

Herkimer Diamond
The clearer the stone the purer the vibration seems to be. Herkimers have a strong frequency that may stimulate both psychic visions or clairvoyant abilities.

Although many of these tiny uncommon crystals have a high vibration, they will benefit by being combined with this stone, as the combination will boost the energy of the smaller stone.

When they are used this way, it may feel like you are using a larger stone. So if you wish to boost the energy of small stones, you may find it is particularly helpful to use Herkimer Diamonds, especially when you are using rare minerals.

This is especially valuable when bigger specimens of rare minerals such as Herderite, are quite difficult to obtain. They may also boost the 'perceived' power of stones with a softer energy like Pink Kunzite, making the energy easier to feel.

As well they boost psychic hearing or clairaudient gifts, and other types of psychic powers including boosting mental telepathy.

Who Should Use It

Water included Herkimers are one of the more helpful quartz formations or configurations for healing emotional problems, as they bring the crystal energy of the stone to the heart.

It is blissful stone to use during meditation! The purity and beauty of the energy of these crystals may draw angelic beings and higher spirit guides to it.

You may find that you start connecting to angels.

Herkimer Diamonds will attune to a person using them, and like most quartz crystals are known to be able to retain information. Use the energy of positive affirmations in combination with this crystal.

You might like to program it with a positive affirmation before going to sleep to create a positive attitude, or to wake up with a clearer mind-set. I truly believe in the effectiveness of affirmations, as they can help you in a variety of ways.
