Herkimer Diamonds are not actually Diamonds, but naturally six-sided, double terminated Quartz crystals. Herkimer Diamonds are often so bright and shiny that they resemble Diamonds. The name comes from Herkimer, New York where these bright, beautiful crystals were originally found.
Herkimer Diamonds are useful in attuning you with others, your surroundings, or new energies. This makes Herkimer Diamonds a natural choice to assist in Reiki attunements and other types of energy work.
Working with Herkimer Diamonds is said to bring visions and an increase in psychic experiences. Great for meditation, Herkimer Diamonds can help align the Third-Eye and Crown Chakras. As such, Herkimers have the capacity to aid in astral travel and lucid dreaming.
