April Birthstone | Herkimer Diamond
Nature Of The Stone:
Herkimer Quartz "Diamonds" are the high energy seekers of the crystal world. Unusually transparent with a brilliant sparkle, they manifest pure, solid Light and are powerful amplifiers of spiritual energy. As perfect conduits of the universal Life Force, they are exceptional healing crystals, and are used in meditations, dream and vision work, and advanced spiritualization applications.
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. They are reported to be harder than all other Quartz, giving them the strength and durability to handle difficult challenges beyond the scope of other Quartz crystals. What they lack in physical size, they more than make up for in spirit energy.
Healing and Gemstone Meanings:
Physical: The diamond is an energy amplifier. It is a stone that is thought to never requires recharging. It will bring strength and endurance to all energies and will enhance the power of other crystals. However, beware, as this means it will increase negative energy as well as positive! It’s perfect for blocking electromagnetic stress and for protection against cell phone emanations, as it purifies and detoxifies all of the body’s systems, rebalances the metabolism, and builds up stamina, strength and treating allergies and chronic conditions. It also helps glaucoma and clears sight. Diamond effectively treats dizziness and vertigo, and benefits the brain.
Spiritual: For attunement, the Herkimers should be held simultaneously as one at first, then upon parting, each person should retain one of the stones; or, a cluster may remain at one location while an individual carries a portion of that cluster on his person to connect with the energy of a group or environment.
Herkimer crystal is also a valuable asset in its ability to receive and magnify the influence of other stones. It expands a small or soft energy stone, giving it the strength and effects of a much larger stone. These have a crystal memory, accepting and retaining information which can be retrieved at a later time. They may also be programmed with thoughts of love, well-being, or healing for others to draw on.
The Herkimer Diamond is extremely useful in healing environments where its clarity, brilliance and high frequency facilitates the removal of energy blocks or debris, and stimulates healing by increasing the amount of Light energy the body can utilize.
It is an exceptionally strong crystal for clearing electromagnetic pollution, radioactivity, and geopathic stress, and makes an excellent environmental spray or gem elixir. Larger Herkimers, even cloudy, included ones, may be used to grid a home, healing space or bed.
