Here’s Why I Love Herkimer Diamonds and Why You Will Too
The Herkimer diamond is one of my absolute favorite crystals. A clear quartz stone, the Herkimer diamond was originally found in Herkimer County, New York, hence the name. While not an actual diamond, it is named so because of its sparkle, brilliance and shape. The most powerful of all Quartz crystals, it is amazing for healing and amplifying spiritual energy.
This crystal is extremely strong as it helps in clearing geopathic stress, radioactivity, and electromagnetic pollution. It releases energy blockage and it helps with the chakras. According to Cassandra Eason, author of The New Crystal Bible, this crystal helps prevent physical exhaustion and burnout, and stimulates immune defenses. She also says that the Herkimer diamond is a powerful stone in the workplace as it brings prosperity and positive attention through high achievement. As if that is not enough, it is beneficial in stabilizing company finances.
On a personal level, I love it the most because it is a crystal of emotional support for me. It lifts me up if I rub it for a few minutes when I am frustrated or when I need to clear my head. Meditation is the best and most rewarding to me with this crystal. This stone is also known for bringing prophetic dreams and it boosts your intuition in an amazing way. I actually keep one in my pillowcase a couple of nights a week and, of course, one on my desk at work.
The Herkimer diamond is a crystal of attunement. If you are broken-hearted, place it on the heart chakra, if unable to speak about something that troubles you, place it on the throat chakra. Always be optimistic and think about the best outcome.
The best part is that it’s not expensive and it’s readily available in the United States. If you happen to be in Herkimer, New York, the origin of the discovery of this crystal, well, lucky you!
