As diamonds are the official April birthstone, there is no better stone to highlight this month than the Herkimer Diamond! Though technically, it is not so much a diamond as it is actually a special double-terminated crystal discovered and mined in Herkimer County, New York. But is very much sought after nonetheless for its brilliant sparkle, clarity and spiritual energy.
A stone of spiritual attunement, Herkimer Diamond is known to stimulate psychic abilities, spiritual vision and guidance from higher dimensions. It is said to clears all chakras (energy centers in the body), allowing the body to be an open channel for spiritual energy to flow. Herkimer Diamonds are great for detoxifying as well. It is one of the best crystals for clearing electromagnetic pollution and geopathic stress.
