HERKIMER DIAMOND

First named diamonds for their rareness in nature by the Mohawk Indians, Herkimers are the highly lustrous geometric deposits of crystal quartz found exclusively in limestone caves of Herkimer, New York. With a diamond-like double-terminated shape and a  0.5+ increase in hardness from regular quartz on the Mohs scale, the geological information stored in these nearly 500 million year old stones make them powerful amplifiers of energy, companions for meditation and renewal.
