Mayor Eric Adams says healing crystals give NYC ‘special energy’

Call it geode politics.

Mayor Adams said the Big Apple is dotted with unique crystals that emit a “special energy.”

The former officer – and jewel man – even wears multicolored healing stones on his right wrist. Adams has gotten so into New Age fashion that local blog Hell Gate NYC has dubbed him “NYC’s first Crystals Guy mayor.”

Expensive crystals are popular with celebrities like Adele and Spencer Pratt, and even some Wall Street collectors who swear by their “healing” properties.

Speaking to Politico earlier this spring, Adams said he’s discovered that NYC’s iconic bedrock is made up of unique gems and minerals and that “there’s a special energy emanating from here.”

The “rock center” that Adams appears to be referring to is the geological layer known as the Manhattan Shale, outcrops of which can actually be seen in areas such as Central Park as well as in the basement of Grand Central Terminal.

It contains more than 100 minerals – including quartz, kyanite and dumortierite – and was formed around 450 million years ago.

A New York-based crystal expert told the Guardian that the mayor – who recently declared that a “mood shift” is happening in NYC – also appears to be sporting several types of quartz on his wrist.

“A quartz is a high-energy crystal,” Nancy Soto, an employee at the Namaste crystal store near Union Square, told The Post, noting that the minerals are growing in popularity among young people on TikTok.

“It’s a high-vibrational crystal that clears all things” — including negativity, Soto added, calling Adam’s affinity for the rocks “predictive thinking.”

But judging by this week’s poll numbers — in which a majority of New Yorkers said Adams needs to do a better job — the gems may not be helping the mayor in the negativity department.

And the scientific community, who think “crystal healing” is a bunch of crap, agrees.

“They have absolutely no power to affect the human body,” Michael Shermer, editor of Skeptic magazine and monthly columnist for Scientific American, told The Post in 2017.
