Herkimer Diamond Gold Wrap Cuff Bracelet

$ 159.00
This bracelet features a genuine Herkimer diamond Crystal mined in Herkimer county, New York. In fact this rare form of quartz is actually a cluster of one large crystal, host to two smaller crystals. The bracelet base is an oxidized sterling silver which I did not polish in order to achieve a nice contrast with the gold wire. I used a diamond cut, gold filled wire which has tiny facets to create a sparkly texture. This rare beauty measures 25mm x 20mm and sits in a prong setting and is reinforced by the gold wire work across the stone. This may be a statement bracelet but it's not a heavy piece and in fact the bracelet is quite comfortable to wear. The cuff can be shaped to the wrist for a snug fit.

Herkimer Diamond: This form of quartz is a double terminated crystal, with two naturally faceted ends. It is a rarer form of crystal as it forms free-floating in pockets of clay, rather than on one side of a stone. This form of quartz from China is called a double terminated quartz, those found in New York, near Herkimer county are known as Herkimer diamonds. They resemble rough, natural diamonds and that is how they got their name. They tend to be highly sought-after, as those who believe in the power of crystals claim that energy can flow in both directions through a double terminated crystal, and this is what makes them ideal for healing.

Metaphysically, Herkimer diamonds are known as the "stone of attunement." It is said to assist with balance on the mental, emotional and physical levels. It can be used to clear and open any chakra. It relieves tension and thereby promotes peace of mind. It's been used for auric cleansing and dream recall. Physically, it has also been used to heal addictions and remove toxins.
