Herkimer Diamonds are Quartz crystals that formed in soft mud which did not restrict their growth. For this reason they are often double terminated. They are believed to stimulate psychic ability, including telepathy, spiritual vision and clairvoyance, and to promote dream recall and understanding.
Herkimer Diamonds are also said to help people to become attuned to each other. They are especially useful for helping healers to attune to their patients. If two attuned people are parted and each retains a Herkimer diamond then the diamonds are said to help link them together while they are apart.
Herkimer diamonds are a very powerful clearer of electromagnetic pollution and a blocker of geopathic stress. In healing they are said to detoxify the body, to protect against radioactivity and to strengthen the body’s own natural mechanisms. They are also believed to relieve insomnia caused by geopathic stress, to correct DNA and metabolic imbalances and to reduce stress and tension.
