A Bit About Herkimer Diamonds

A Bit About Herkimer Diamonds

History & Science

Herkimer diamonds were formed in pockets of bedrock in a shallow sea, and were first discovered in the Mohawk River Valley in Herkimer County, NY, which is still the largest source. Although not actually diamonds, but a type of double-terminated quartz, they have earned the title due to their clarity and natural faceting. Unlike diamonds, however, they don't require any cutting. They're presented in exactly the same shape they came out of the earth!


Metaphysical Properties

The Herkimer diamond has the amplification properties of clear quartz with an extra vibrational energy that comes from its natural structure and faceting. It is said to aid in spiritual flow, healing, and spiritual communication.
