About Herkimer Diamonds: Despite their diamond misnomer, Herkimers are are actually six-sided, double-terminated quartz crystals. Among the Mohawk and Iroquois Indians these crystals were symbolically important as amulets of power, protection, success, health and long life. As early as the 1700”s, settlers have been mining Herkimer Diamonds because of the gem stones diamond like clarity, natural facets, and double termination. The original miners thought they had found diamonds.
Unscrupulous jewelers during the Civil War often tried to pass off these stones as the more precious variety. Herkimer Diamonds are the most powerful of all Quartz crystals. Being doubly terminated, they have the ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and to amplify and focus it intently. Called an “attunement stone”, it is useful for attuning to another person, group or environment.
