What are Herkimer Diamonds
If diamonds are a girls best friend the Herkimer Diamonds are a free spirited womans very best friend. These 'Diamonds' have mesmerised me since I was first introduced to them.
A Herkimer diamond is not only beautiful it's a powerful healing crystal which gives clarity and peace.
But I'm often asked 'what are Herkimer Diamonds?'
While they're not actually traditional diamonds, the Herkimer "Diamond" is a type of high-vibrational, exceptionally clear form of Quartz that attunes you to your soul's purpose, environment and energy of others.
Herkimer Diamonds bring balance and clarity along with rustic charm. These glistening stones come from nature as they are, raw, uncut and unpolished.
They are double-terminated quartz crystals which are mined in Herkimer County, USA. The clear crystals found in the rock are diamond like shaped naturally and are mined ethically, above ground.
They naturally have a diamond-like geometrical shape, an organic, uncut and unpolished look that resembles diamond shapes and are close to five hundred million years old.
These fascinating gems have interesting inclusions which make every piece unique ensuring boho babes have a truly unique piece of jewellery making it even more special.
The pieces we make with lots of dark inclusions are in our 'Starry Nights' collection and perfect for black diamond lovers.
