In November 2012 I purchased a Herkimer Diamond as a part of preparing for the Ascension. I ended up losing it at the gym. I figured the gem decided that I was not in alignment with its energies at the time.
A few weeks ago I was doing some deep cleaning in my home and I found my Herkimer Diamond wedged in a floorboard. I know for a fact that I lost it at the gym a few days after I bought it.
It found me again but only after I learned more about crystals and respecting their energies.
