The Herkimer Diamond is the “Attunement Stone.” Herkimers are the high energy seekers of the crystal world. They are clear conduits of Universal Life Force. They are excellent for breath work, meditation, dream and vision work. They are the most powerful of all quartz crystals, as they receive and amplify spiritual energies and also focus it. Herkimers remove energy blockages or debris and stimulate healing by increasing the amount of Light energy the body can take in and utilize. It is a strong crystal for clearing EMF pollution radioactivity and geopathic stress. It’s also a really good stone for stabilizing finances.
Herkimer Diamonds are named for the area in Herkimer, New York, where they are found. All Herkimers are 16-sided and double-terminated (points at both ends), and can be perfectly clear or have black carbon deposit inclusions. They can also be found in a smoky color or with inclusions of water (Enhydro inclusions). Many times you can find Herkimers with baby stone attached or in a family group (multiple stones together).
This tends to be a good stone to use for dowsing as it clears energy to give you an accurate reading. I have several beautiful Herkimers available on my Pendants page.
