Another affordable alternative for the April birthstone, the Herkimer diamond is the most powerful of all quartz crystals. A rarer form of crystal, these double-terminated stones come from Herkimer County, New York. The 'diamond' in their name is derived from the clarity and natural faceting that they possess.
Being doubly terminated, meaning that they have two naturally faceted ends, they have the ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and amplify and focus it intently. Known as the 'attunement stone', these high vibrational gems promote the wholeness of being by uniting the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states of consciousness.
They are said to stimulate psychic abilities such as clairvoyance, telepathy, and promote dream recall. Not only that, the energies work to put you at ease while in uncomfortable environments and will guide you in the right direction in tough situations.
These magnificent stones may actually be good for your health as well! Because they have been around for so long, civilizations across the ages have counted on this crystal to cleanse, protect and purify. They eliminate stress and tension from the body and help to align the energy structure of the user. They may be helpful for the dispersal of accumulated toxins in the body and for rebuilding cellular structure, correcting cellular disorders and metabolic imbalances. In addition, they may be used to heal the eyes and correct vision.
When it comes to success and wealth, Herkimer diamonds will boost your determination and focus because it will clear any negative energy from your aura, allowing the positive energies to move in.
