Scientific information: Herkimer diamonds are formed in sedimentary rock. The pockets in the sedimentary rock would fill up with gas from decomposing creatures several layers below and air pressure would increase. The air pressure combined with the increasing heat create these crystals that are Herkimer diamonds. Payson diamonds are formed by lesser pressure than Herkimers, and often form in geodes due to hollowed out areas in sedimentary rock.
Revealed by Man: Herkimer diamonds were first discovered by miners in the 18th century. They were found in large quantities with dolostone. Herkimer diamonds can be found in the Middle East, New York, and parts of Asia. Payson diamonds were found at Payson, Arizona in the late 1900s. Where they were found is now called Diamond Point.
Legend and Lore: Herkimer diamonds are said to strengthen ones mind. Herkimer diamonds are also fabled to promote energy and focus as well as purify spaces and purify yourself. Payson diamonds bring high energy. They are said to amplify spiritual energy and intelligence.
