Herkimer Diamond Lore:
Herkimer diamonds are actually a special formation of quartz — tiny double-terminated crystals with exceptional clarity and brightness. They form in masses of dolostone, hidden in little cavities called “vugs.” Workmen in Herkimer County, New York, discovered them more than two centuries ago, while cutting through rock in the Mohawk River Valley. But even before that, Native Americans and European settlers found the stones and prized them for their amazing clarity. Many people who come across these tiny gems just naturally seem to feel their specialness. Some say Herkimer diamonds hold and transmit only the purest energy — so much so that they will vibrate if someone near them tells a lie. The purity of Herkimer diamonds can be helpful for people who need to stand up for their rights, or have the courage to do the right thing in a difficult situation.
