The Magic of Herkimer Diamonds


 Herkimer Diamond Post Earrings in 14k Gold Fill



Herkimer diamonds are one of the most unique and fascinating minerals in the world. As our collection grows, I thought it worth sharing more about these amazing beauties. 

What are Herkimer Diamonds? 

Herkimer diamonds are a type of quartz crystal that form in small pockets within sedimentary rock formations. They are found exclusively in the Herkimer County region of New York, where they were first discovered in the late 18th century. Herkimer diamonds are not actually diamonds at all, but they are named after their diamond-like shape and their exceptional clarity and brilliance. They are also known as "diamond quartz" or "New York diamonds."

What makes Herkimer Diamonds so special? 

Herkimer diamonds are unique because they are double-terminated, meaning that they have points on both ends. Most quartz crystals have a single point on one end and a flat base on the other, but Herkimer diamonds have two points, which makes them ideal for use in jewelry and other decorative objects.

Symbolism & Spirituality 

There is something truly special and magical about Herkimer diamonds. They have been prized for centuries for their beauty, and many people believe that they have healing and spiritual properties as well.

One of the most remarkable things about Herkimer diamonds is their clarity. They are known for being exceptionally clear and free of impurities, which gives them a unique brilliance and sparkle. This clarity is thought to be a reflection of the crystal's ability to transmit energy and light, making it a powerful tool for spiritual and energy work.

Herkimer diamonds are also believed to have a high vibration and to be powerful amplifiers of energy. They are said to be able to amplify and enhance the energy of other crystals and to help balance and harmonize the energy of the body.
