“Herkimer Diamond” is a generic name for a double-terminated quartz crystal from Herkimer County, New York, and the Mohawk River Valley. They’re known for their extreme clarity and New Age believers feel they have mystical powers and are the most powerful of all quartz crystals. When I found this center stone, I just thought it was really beautiful and that it felt solid and comfortable in my hand. It took me awhile to find a bead color that enhanced, rather than overpowered, its crystaline purity. I was thrilled with how these green beads brightened perfection. So you have a choice– you can either buy this pretty necklace for it’s power, or for it’s beauty. You can’t lose!
