These raw quartz crystals are affectionately referred to as "Herkimer Diamonds" because they're found in Herkimer County in New York, and they form so clear there with such beautifully terminated facets that they sparkle like crazy and evoke the feel of a diamond. They have smooth, naturally formed faces, and sometimes have neat little inclusions or refractive pockets that shine like rainbows in the sunlight.
Herkimer Diamonds are called “attunement stones" and are useful in attuning you with others, your surroundings, or new energies. This makes Herkimer Diamonds a natural choice to assist in Reiki attunement and other types of energy work.
Herkimer Diamonds help to relieve tensions, producing a peaceful calm. Working with them is said to bring visions and an increase in psychic experiences. Great for meditation, Herkimer Diamonds can help one to experience true Divine Grace and bring Divine energy down into the Third Eye and Crown Chakras. As such, Herkimer’s have the capacity to aid in astral travel and lucid dreaming.
The Herkimer Diamond is a stone of release and relaxation. It helps to clear the mind/body of unconscious fears and repressions, allowing for a complete and total relaxation and expansion of life energy. The Herkimer Diamond can also be helpful to release and remove toxins from the body. Are you having trouble sleeping or remembering your dreams? If you wish to begin to experience lucid dreams, where you are aware of the content of your dreams while you are still asleep, it may be extremely helpful to place one under the pillow. It is well known that Herkimer Diamonds will help to heighten your ability to dream and that they can stimulate lucid dreaming. Using them may result in surprising insights, creativity, and true vision in every area of your life.
Their strong crystal energy may activate your third eye chakra, crown chakra, soul star chakra and etheric chakras. This may boost your powers of perception, giving you almost visionary ability and allow eyesight improvement and healing.
