Herkimer Diamonds are a variety of quartz crystals which are found in and around Herkimer, New York. They are named "diamonds" because they are harder than most other varieties of quartz crystals, their formations (short, small, stuby and double-terminated) and glossy surfaces make them superficially resemble diamonds. The color of Herkimer Diamonds ranges from totally clear, to clear with some beautiful black carbon deposits.
The properties of Herkimer Diamonds include the abilities to enhance and clarify dreams and visions, facilitate purification, and spiritualize the physical life of those who wear or hold them. They are often used in vision quests and dream explorations. This stone is ruled by the storm element. Herkimers activate the third eye (6th chakra) and the crown (7th chakra).
Silver is a metal known to conduct lunar energy, the archetypal feminine energy, mystery, introversion and the unconscious. It’s associated with the element of earth and activates all seven main chakras in the human body.
This piece is made with raw, uncut stones so each stone will slightly vary from the one in the photos. Each is one of a kind!
