I thought i would buy one of these crystals, known as Herkimer Diamonds, seeing as i heard so much about its metaphysical properties, and at this price it was hard not too.
After reading the reviews i was a little apprehensive, but for the price it was worth the gamble.
So it arrived in a small round plastic case, nestled neatly on a cushion of polyfoam, and inside my home it does indeed look like a piece of broken glass...
However, step outside into the sunlight and this little herkimer sparkled like the diamond it is (yes i know its not a true diamond lol). I then shook both hands vigorously and rubbed them together, and then pointed the herkimer into my left hand while rotating it, and i felt a sensation i have never felt before, not like this anyway, it was rather intense.
I kept the crystal with my others on a special plate by the window, and for weeks didnt go near it, however yesterday i picked it up, went outside in the bright sunlight to view it properly again and i found it suddenly gained lots of small rainbows within!
It went into my pocket and there it stayed all day long, and i felt really confident. So confident i even confronted a man who was urinating in the street in broad daylight, i stormed over shouting "this isn't a f@#%£$% toilet!" something i would never ever do, but he was urinating against a very pretty bush with flowers on it and i felt so enraged that he would do this at all, let alone in public and in broad daylight!
Actually it could have been a lack of sleep =)
I clearly have a true herkimer, yes they are small, yes they do look odd (they dont grow in rocks but water, hence their strangeness), there is something about it, and i wont be buying any Moldavite any time soon either...
