Herkimer diamonds are quartz crystals that mimic genuine diamonds. These stones are typically transparent but they pack some serious sparkle.
Herkimer diamonds are also thought to be high intensity energy stones. Many spiritual believers wear or carry these stones for their healing properties; they are thought to be good for meditation and dream work. Of all quartz crystals, these stones are thought to be the most powerful! And just like actual diamonds, herkimer diamonds are also very hard stones so any jewelry made with herkimer is thought to be a great choice for daily wear!
Herkimer is also kind of like the champagne of wine because only true herkimer diamonds are found in Herkimer, NY.
