True Herkimer Diamonds only come from New York state, with the main deposit in the Mohawk Valley, a picturesque mountain wonderland in between Syracuse and Albany. The Herkimer Diamond stones formed approximately 500 MILLION YEARS AGO, making it among the oldest of the quartz crystals.
Each stone has 18 natural faces, giving it the appearance of being faceted. Some stones also have black inclusions of anthraxolite, leftovers of some of the ancient material that formed these amazing and unique crystals. Herkimer Diamonds formed slowly over time, which gives them their amazing clarity and brilliance. In fact, even heavily included crystals shine brighter than any of the other quartz in the world!
Metaphysically, these stones pack a real punch! Due to the geometric nature and the double terminated points, these stones are amplifiers, meaning they amplify the energy being put into them. They will also amplify the energy of other gemstones they are paired with.
They are also attunement stones, stimulating psychic abilities such as clairvoyance and spiritual vision, as well as clearing chakras and opening channels for energy to flow freely.
