Larimar is known as the “Stone of Communication, Clarity, and Truth”. It is said to bring calm and balance to any situation, removing stress and negativity. Larimar will help to embrace change and move through the process effortlessly. It’s known as one of the cardinal water element stones, yet is born of fire in its volcanic origins. One of the few crystals to balance the polarities of these energies, Larimar cools tempers and calms fears, relieves stress, and nurtures the physical and emotional bodies. It is powerful in meditation and in connecting to the Divine Feminine and is particularly helpful in releasing emotional bonds, patterns, or principles that no longer serve our highest good. A stone of clear communication, it provides the strength and courage needed to speak openly from the heart.
A rare blue variety of Pectolite, Larimar is found only in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. Its color varies from white, light blue, green-blue to deep blue. While Pectolite, in general, is not a rare occurrence, none have the unique blue coloration of Larimar, which is the result of cobalt substituting for calcium. Larimar is a high vibration stone that connects to both the Heart and Throat Chakras. It is often used by practitioners in self-healing.
