Herkimer diamonds are actually brilliantly clear quartz crystals which have been formed by the slow cooling of lava. They are always double pointed and often have a central connection point which was an attachment to another crystal. This specimen comes from in Herkimer N.Y. where they were originally found and named. This particular specimen has 3 larger points all connected together with many "babies" growing off of each. The clarity and luster of this piece is astounding.
Herkimer Quartz "Diamonds" are the high energy seekers of the crystal world. Unusually transparent 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, and are used in meditations, dream and vision work, and advanced spiritualization applications.
Herkimer Diamonds are the most powerful of all Quartz crystals. Being doubly terminated, they have the ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and to amplify and focus it intently. They are reported to be harder than all other Quartz, giving them the strength and durability to handle difficult challenges beyond the scope of other Quartz crystals.
