Herkimer Diamonds

Herkimer Diamonds are beautiful, double-terminated quartz crystals found in the New York Adirondack Mountains. These magnificent works of nature grow in the dolomite cliffs of ancient sea beds. They come out of the earth looking like they've been cut and polished, but they haven't been touched by human hands. The womb of Grandmother Earth has done all the work!

Herkimer Diamonds are approximately 550 million years old. They have become known as diamonds due to their hardness, clarity and natural faceting (they will scratch glass- a true diamond will cut glass). The double termination of the herkimer creates 18 facets. Herkimers carry strong dreaming medicine, and are known in the mineral world as the keepers of the dream. They are also renowned for their healing properties and positive energy. Their 18 facets allow one to see many reflections, possibilities and solutions to a problem. Because of this, they are known to be great meditation aids.
