This piece started as an experiment, I was in a solid creation state when it developed, playing with texture and shape. Then, last March I went on a trip to Peru. Something about this piece felt like it wanted to go, it was the one piece that traveled with me. As I hiked the misty steps at Machu Picchu I had a startling realization why. The texture on this piece so perfectly mimics the steps there, it's almost as if it was made in the presence of them. I set this ring in stone and let it soak up the place. I still can feel its radiance.
Herkimers are thought to be the high energy seekers in the world of crystals. They make palpable pure solid light and amplify solid spiritual energy. Thought to be one of the best healing crystals they are used in dream and vision work as well as conduits for spiritual exercises. They are thought to transmit and receive energy.
Herkimer diamonds are not in fact a diamond but a double terminated (pointed) quartz crystal. They have a brilliant radiance.
