A Herkimer diamond is a beautiful double terminated quartz crystal that can be found in Herkimer village, New York.
You may not believe this, but this gemstone is almost five hundred million years old!
It’s not actually a real diamond, but it resembles a diamond because of its sparkling clarity and magnificent geometric shape.
It’s also clear and colorless just like a diamond, but there are some others that are smoky and others with black chlorite inclusions.
Herkimer diamonds are often found in Canada, China, England, Pakistan, India and Germany.
The Herkimer diamond is also known as the Stone of Attunement because it can help you attune to any situation or environment.
Even if you’re in an unfamiliar territory or situation, surrounded by people you don’t know and with intentions that are unclear, the energies of the Herkimer diamond will put you at ease and guide you toward the right direction.
This crystal is said to give you the balance that you need on a physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual level.
I have been working with this incredible crystal for quite a few years now and it's one of my absolute favourites.
