The herkimer diamond is a unique form of quartz which crystallizes in the configuration of double-terminated short, stout, clear or included prismatic crystals. This mineral was given the name due to the discovery of this pseudo-diamond in Herkimer, NY, USA.
There are now herkimer diamonds which are also available from Oaxacca, Mexico and from Spain; the ones from Oaxacca often contain rutile or geothite.
Amathyst Herkimer Diamonds are available from Tanzania and Mexico. They intgrate the properties of the Amethyst with the properties of Herkimer Diamonds and a truly powerful stone.
This mineral provides an energy of delicate harmony, enhancing distinct awareness and unbridled spontaneity. It helps one to "be", provideing for an alliance of surrender a strength allowing for the further recognition of the essential being within the self; recognition of this aspect also provides for the acknowledgment and appreciation of the essential being, which is not the self, but is within each of us.
The energy of the herkimer diamond helps one to begin again in this lifetime, while allowing one to recognize ones inner space andto remember that there is "nothing to become" - that one is that which one has been seeking and only needs to allow the actualization. It also assists one inclearing the body-mind system of unconscious fears and repressions, allowing for total relaxation and expansion of the life energy.
The herkimer diamond is known as an "attunement stone". It can be used to attune oneself with another person, environment or activity.
It is quite important to use a herkimer diamond proir to the "laying-on-of-stones", or in other healing situations when the practitioner and the subject are not well acquainted; in these cases, a suggested method is for the practitioner and the subject to hold the herkimer diamond, as one, for several minutes prior to the session.
Placement of a portion of a cluster in one location, while carrying another segment of that cluster on ones person, can provide for attunement to the activities or the energy of that environment.
For a continual attunement between two people, two herkimers can be held simultaneiously by these people and each person can subsequently carry one of the herkimers. This approach can also be applied to groups.
In addition, the herkimer diamond stimulates clairvoyant and clairaudient abilities and can assis one in the prescience and in telepathic communication.
It can accept and retain information which can be retrieved at a later time; information can also be stored within the herkimer prior to giving the miner to another (the reason of the gift ranging from healing facilitation to the transfer of thoughts of love). After implanting thought-forms of love, it has been used in gridding environments to facilitate healing and well-being for others and for the earth.
Some people who work in proximity to radioactive materials either wear or carry this stone as a form of protection and to facilitate the dissipation of any harmful rays.
The herkimer diamond is quite useful for dispersal of toxins which have accumulated in the body and for re-building the cellular structure. It has been used to correct imbalances in RNA/DNA and the metabolic rate.
The alleviation of tension, and the calming of the outer bodies and the physical body which is produced by this mineral, helps to align the energy structure of the user.
It is also quite helpful in releasing the tensions and rigidness of body tissues, further assistingin the recovery of memory by these areas, in order to facilitate healing.
