This 11.5 carat Water Clear Pakistani Herkimer Diamond with Hydrocarbon Inclusion, measures .7 inches long, and offers a gorgeous example of the Herkimer Diamond formation.
Herkimer diamonds are double-terminated quartz crystals with a hexagonal growth pattern that grow in cavities in rock formations which often contain hydrocarbons and hematite. Herkimer Diamonds will grow abundantly in these cavities, creating a druzy carpet of beautiful crystals on the inside of the cavity, creating lovely geodes in some cases.
Herkimer quartz crystals formed by some estimates as much as 220-400 million years ago. The edges of the quartz formation crystallized faster than the inner regions, forming troughs that trapped air and oil and other material.
The golden rays of the Sun, captured in decomposing vegetable matter over immense periods of geological time, and concentrated into blackish hydrocarbons, create the specks of dark color you see in this extremely rare Herkimer diamond.
Pakistani Herkimer Diamonds relate to all chakras, and especially the root chakra, which is a dark red or black color, providing a feeling of stability, security and safety, offering energetic protection to the bearer. These unique crystals are both energizing and relaxing, helping to promote the smooth flow of Universal Life Force energy throughout the physical and energy bodies, soothing the restless mind and attuning the meditator to the Source of Universal Life Force energy in our Sun, giver of life to all on Earth.
These Herkimer diamond crystals can be used to purify the emotions, to encourage the smooth flow of emotional life, and to facilitate the release of emotional blockages caused by traumas in this and previous lifetimes. The presence of the root chakra related dark hydrocarbons within the crystal adds to this stone's power to protect the user and purify the stone's environment of all negative emotions by transforming negative energies into more positive frequencies.
The Herkimer diamond is known to lightworkers as an attunement stone. Two Herkimers can be used to attune the bearer to another person, environment or activity. Place one Herkimer in one location and keep the other with you to maintain the attunement. Two Herkimers can be held simultaneously by two people in a brief meditation, and when they each leave with one, the two will remain in attunement.
"The Herkimer Diamond stimulates clairvoyant and clairaudient abilities and can assist one in prescience and telepathic communication," says Melody. "It can accept and retain information which can be retrieved at a later time; information can also be stored within the Herkimer prior to giving the mineral to another [the reason for the gift ranging from healing facilitation to the transfer of thoughts of love]."
This crystal transmits a very grounding, yet physically uplifting energy. Herkimers generally are known to help in clearing mind and body of unconscious fears and other negative energies. They promote relaxation and energetic renewal.
This crystal has been cleaned with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energy attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing, so it will continue to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation. It has also been cleaned and charged with the natural energy of sunlight. It is ready for you to program according to your own needs and desires.
Use this powerful crystal with loving wisdom and respect its long journey in the Earth that has lasted for many long historical cycles. This crystal is a powerful tool, a love-gift from the Divine Mother.
