Herkimer Diamonds are powerful amplifiers of spiritual energy, bestowing many physical, psychological, and psychic benefits to wearers. They are perfect conduits of the Universal Life Force, popularly used during meditation, for dream and vision work, and advanced spiritualisation.
Powerful in their own right, Herkimer diamonds also act as amplifiers of other crystals and energies, making them incredibly versatile for all manner of use.
What Are Herkimer Diamonds & Where Are They Found?
Herkimer diamonds are small, double-terminated quartz crystals (not, as their name suggests, actual diamond). They are formed in hard rock matrices, making them tougher than other forms of quartz, which in turn contributes to the intensity of their energy.
They are referred to as diamonds because they can be exceptionally clear and colourless, along with their geometric shape. Crystals can be cloudy, have inclusions, air bubbles, carbon deposits – and in some rare cases, entrapped water.
The term “Herkimer” comes from Herkimer County, New York, USA, where most of the crystals are found. Similar crystals can be found in Canada, China, England and Germany, but these lack the hardness, high gloss, or vibrational strength of genuine Herkimer diamonds.
Benefits of Herkimer Diamonds
Herkimer diamonds have a strong frequency and distinct, harmonious energy to them. As such, they have many benefits and healing properties.
Known as the “Stone of Attunement”, Herkimer diamonds can help you attune to people, places and situations that are unfamiliar to you. They are perfect for establishing strong connections with new people, easing your nerves in an unfamiliar environment, or guiding you on the right path in a situation you are uncomfortable in.
One of Herkimer diamond’s best-known and most popular properties is the reception and amplification of other stones’ energies. Combining a Herkimer stone with a small stone can give one the same energy as if they were using a larger stone. This is an effective way of getting the most energy out of small samples of particularly expensive minerals such as Herderite.
Likewise, they can boost the perceived energies of stones whose energies are harder to feel, such as Pink Kunzite.
Herkimer diamonds are known to boost psychic and clairvoyant abilities. They are a potent ascension stone, allowing you to achieve the highest spiritual vibration while still in your physical body. They can aid astral travel, and secure better connections with your spirit guide.
Health Benefits of Herkimer Diamonds
The crystal energy of Herkimer diamonds can bestow great physical, emotional and psychological health benefits on the wearer.
One of the most popular health benefits of Herkimer diamond is pain relief. Placing the stone on the affected area can help to relieve pain without the need for drugs or chemicals.
Herkimer diamond can also be used to boost the immune system, protecting you from common colds and infections.
The attuning quality of Herkimer diamond also works to help a person attune to their own thoughts and feelings. In this way people can relieve stress, focus more clearly, and achieve a level of calm and relaxation they might sorely need in their lives. Herkimer diamond can help guide you on the right path in difficult decisions in life, easing the heavy psychological and emotional burden often produced by uncertainty.
Herkimer Diamond and Moldavite
Above we mentioned how Herkimer diamond receives and boosts the energies of other stones. One of the most popular pairings is Herkimer diamond and Moldavite.
Moldavite is a tektite formed during a meteor impact in southern Germany some 15 million years ago. It is a stone of connectivity, blending earthly and extra-terrestrial energies.
Moldavite shares many of the balancing properties of Herkimer diamond, helping to feel comfortable, find direction, and attain inner peace. It is popularly used for dream and vision work.
Combining Moldavite with clear quartz (such as Herkimer diamond)
- Boosts the effects of meditation
- Aids in contacting spirit guides
- Aides in the creation of healing grids
- Amplifies the energy of the environment
Combining Moldavite with Herkimer specifically will boost the visual aspect of meditation, allowing you to soar to greater astral heights than with either stone in isolation.
