This special Herkimer is a natural healer. It's golden color, from iron oxide, is present in a thin coating as well as being trapped inside healed fractures.
A healed fracture occurs during the crystal's formation. Something caused a crack, or hesitation in growth. As the crystal continued growing it sealed itself. These crystals are considered powerful healers because of their ability to have healed themselves. This particular healed fracture strikes an amazing rainbow.
Rainbows, also called 'color veils', occur when light is refracted by the prismatic effect of inclusions. Crystal healers maintain they increase awareness that love is within all moments of life's experiences. Rainbows here are much brighter than the ones captured in the bottom two pictures. They display best in bright light and sunshine.
Considering the healed fractures present, clarity of this natural Herkimer is very good.
Externally, over 98% of facets (faces) are smooth and clean. Double termination points are complete. One is a chisel tip, the other the traditional point.
With its generous size, this natural golden healer Herkimer crystal is as wonderful to hold as it is to look at !
