This is a one-of-a-kind collector specimen I am honored to have in my shop!
Quadruple decked, double-termined, Herkimer Diamonds, stacked one on top of the other.
Two of the four points have additional smaller double-terminated points attached-for a total of 12 double-terminated Herkimer Diamonds, on one cluster! Rainbows galore on this specimen.
The top and bottom Herkimers are have extreme clarity (Male), middle two have many internal fractures, making them cloudy (female). There are also many traditional record keepers all over.
There is just so much to appreciate about this lovely cluster!
Locality: Herkimer Mine, Herkimer, New York (purchased from the family that mined it)
Measurements: Approximately 4 13/16" x 2 7/16" x 1 10/16"
Herkimer Quartz "Diamonds" are the high energy seekers of the crystal world. Unusually transparent with a brilliant sparkle, they manifest pure, solid Light and are powerful amplifiers of spiritual energy. As perfect conduits of the universal Life Force, they are exceptional healing crystals, and are used in meditations, dream and vision work, and advanced spiritualization applications.
Herkimer Diamonds are the most powerful of all Quartz crystals. Being doubly terminated, they have the ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and to amplify and focus it intently.Â They are reported to be harder than all other Quartz, giving them the strength and durability to handle difficult challenges beyond the scope of other Quartz crystals. What they lack in physical size, they more than make up for in spirit energy.
