Greetings and Brightest Blessings,
This month's Crystal is the Herkimer Diamond. Do Not Confuse with a real Diamond! They are in fact a from of clear Quartz but so clear!. with a hardness of 7.5 and a real Diamond at 10 they are really close. Herks' are the hardest form of clear quartz. Found in Dol-stone theat dates back 500 million years with these crystals being the same! Herkimer is the name of the New York County that these amazing stones come from. Discovered in the late 18th century in the hills above the Mohawk River Valley. You can purchase Herks' or you can mine them yourself. Either way this crystal does wonderful things. First of all they give you a buzzy, warm and fuzzy vibe.(whether you want it or not). Usually a double terminated crystal with 6 sides and 2 terminations giving it 18 facets! Herks' are noted for their clarity! Herk's are referred to as Attunement Stones. Two people can hold Herk's and then switch them and when apart, the stones can link them telepathically, keep them in tune. They can also be used to tune into specific situations and events to send healing and energy. Herks' give amazing energy and their double termination makes them a powerful tool for balancing. They enhance and amplify any crystal they are used with, can rid the body of toxins, release energy blockages, and be used to help with addictions. Wearing a Herk to bed can help with remembering dreams and used with Amethyst softens the energy so dream recall is there but a more restful sleep occurs. Herkimers help to connect us to the Astral Plane for meditation , and higher self work.
Today Herkimer mining is definitely becoming more commercial. One of the Commercial Mines is "The Ace Of Diamonds" and Dad's Favorite was the Crystal Grove Diamond Mine and Camp Ground. 161 County Hwy 114, Saint Johnsville, NY 13452 (800) 579 3426. We loved this place! I did very well there and so did others! No need to buy equipment, you can rent what you need.
Magic and Love To All

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king
Love and Miss You Dad!
