Let’s explore the meaning of Herkimer diamonds and how you can work with them.

What are Herkimer diamonds?

Herkimer diamonds are like crystallized lightning! These are 2 favs from my collection.

These little babies aren’t really actual diamonds. They’re an extra sparkly form of quartz, found in and around Herkimer, New York.

What can you use them for?

Use Herkimer diamonds for dream work, visions and manifestion.

Keeping one in your personal field helps purify your energy, align your chakras and break up energetic blockages.

They increase the amount of spiritual light your body can use, which makes them a potent tool for almost any kind of healing work.

Because they really resonate with the third-eye and crown chakras, they’re great for lucid dreaming, shamanic journeying and spiritwalking.

They can stimulate your inner vision, blow open your dimensional doors and aid in astral travel.

They’re also powerful magnifiers. (So, be careful what you think when you have one on you…they’ll amplify + broadcast whatever you’re feeling.) That means they boost the energies of other stones.

So, for example, if you’re doing third-eye work with lapis lazuli, add a Herkimer to the mix to pump up the energy of the lapis. (Try it out and see the difference for yourself!).

They’re also amazing allies to draw the spiritual into physical form. And because they’re a form of quartz, they’re programmable, so you can infuse them with an intention. (Can you say manifestation magnet?)

Herkimers can be water clear, or included with carbon, water bubbles, or bright yellow natural petroleum (like the smaller crystal in my pics).

(Me? I use mine for shamanic journeying and dream work. I sleep with a big one under my pillow almost every night.)
