Herkimer Diamond Properties & Chakras
Herkimer Diamond is a double-terminated quartz crystal with moh higher than most quartz crystals. It is not a diamond. It was discovered in Herkimer County and hence had its name but is not unique to Herkimer county only. It can also be found in Germany, China, Afghanistan, England, etc. Compared to real diamonds, they are much more ethically sourced because they are mined above ground in clay deposits. Value in Herkimer Diamonds depends on the Clarity, Color, Cut, Carat and Origin from Herkimer county.
Herkimer Diamonds have good energy flow being natural double-terminated quartz which meant that it is ideal for meditation and spiritual healing. It is a powerful crystal used to open up channels and remove blockages in the 7 chakras system. You can almost feel like there is an opening of energy flow exiting from the back of your neck to the top of your head. It works extremely well when paired with the Lemurian Quartz crystal to aid in your meditation work with spirit guides. It can also be used as a calibration tool for those who want lucid dreams as your spiritual senses will be heightened when a Herkimer Diamond is worn. You will feel your mind and brain expand to the endless possibilities of the unknown hence when making decisions with the Herkimer Diamond, you will feel light and clear. This also makes for other forms of psychic work like animal communication to flow better. Its energies may be too strong for some people and therefore recommended not to wear them as jewellery but otherwise a wonderful gift for spiritual healers to work with. If you need answers from your spirit guides, working with the Herkimer Diamond will be very useful to tap onto higher planes of communication that were otherwise blocked before.
It taps onto all 7 Chakras during meditation. Primarily, it rebalances 5 sets of chakras in the middle namely the Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra and Third Eye Chakra. It calibrates with your Root Chakra and your Crown Chakra to ensure that your process remains grounded throughout. Some of you may feel lightheaded when working with the Herkimer Diamond as it sends its energies upwards from your Root Chakra and out of your Crown Chakra.
Highly recommended to cleanse and charge it with moon water first before activating the charge with a Crown Chakra Tibetan Singing Bowl or Singing Lemurian Quartz Wand. If using a Clear Quartz Singing Bowl, you can use it to charge your crystal without using moon water. Cleansing the crystal still requires water only.
