All of our Larimar Jewelry is highly polished until only the very best of each gemstone is brought to the surface.
WHAT IS LARIMAR?
Larimar stone, a mineral Pectolite, one of the rarest gemstones in the world, can be found only in one location: the region of Barahona, in the south-west of the Dominican Republic. Known for its breathtaking blue color, this gemstone is often considered to symbolize the essence of the Caribbean Sea.
Larimar’s origin story is just as puzzling as the stone itself: many believe that the gemstone is connected to the sunken continent of Atlantis, therefore, sometimes it is called The Atlantis Stone. Edgar Cayce, ’’The Sleeping Prophet’’ (1877-1945), indicated that part of Atlantis could be found in the Caribbean. In his words, ‘’one would find a blue stone with extraordinary healing attributes’’, a description that perfectly describes the Larimar.
What’s more interesting - the gemstone was discovered less than a hundred years after the prophet foretold its existence: in 1974, a Dominican man called Miguel Méndez found some pieces of Larimar on the seashore. He was the one who named this beautiful gemstone by combining his daughter’s name Larissa with the Spanish word for the sea, Mar . The stunning and charming Blue Larimar is also known by many other names: The Dolphin Stone, The Stefilia’s Stone, The Blue Pectolite, The Mermaid Stone and The Lucky Stone.
HEALING AND METAPHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF LARIMAR
Larimar is a crystal of serenity, promoting relaxation in every aspect. It’s a true symbol of the tranquil Sea and Sky energies. Some believe that gazing into the sea-like patterns of the stone helps to balance and calm down one’s inner tides.
Blue Larimar is said to be a highly spiritual stone. It softens, enlightens and heals in a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual way. It represents peace, clarity, and love radiating from within.
As a soothing Water element stone, Larimar cools hot tempers and guides strong passion into peace. It helps us to view our daily events from a different, more positive perspective, as it dulls the negative effects of hurt, depression, the pain of loss, guilt and everyday stress. It can also help battle anxiety and self-doubt.
Blue Larimar’s vibrations teach how to respect, love and nurture oneself, and are incredibly powerful against hurtful behavior. This beautiful stone shares inner peace and helps one remain calm and relaxed when dramatic changes take place in life.
Also, Larimar gemstone is believed to attract more blessings and positive energy towards its wearer. It can increase intuition, remove energy blockages, promote a soothing and relaxing environment, encourage nurturing, creativity and deepen the understanding of oneself.
A Larimar necklace is believed to be incredibly helpful at stimulating the Throat Chakra, thus providing the power of clear communication and the emotional strength and stability that enables one to speak from the depths of one’s heart. It will aid you in speaking your truth to others and help you set up and communicate your personal boundaries to others in a calm and peaceful way. For this reason, Larimar is an ideal gemstone for anyone suffering from PTSD or past trauma.
On top of that, Larimar works effectively well within all of the other Chakras too: from the Heart Chakra to the Crown Chakra, including the Higher Heart (which aids compassion). If the heart chakra is out of balance you may have sudden bursts of anger, jealousy or may have a tendency to blame others for any issues that arise in your personal life.
You might need constant confirmation of your self-worth, have a tendency to feel unloved, or lack compassion for others. With this stone in hand, you are able to connect the lower chakras with the higher chakras to achieve a perfect balance.

Those who suffer from hot flashes may find that Larimar’s cooling oceanic energy will absorb the sensation of the heat, thus alleviating the symptoms and making them much less noticeable.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR LARIMAR JEWELRY
It is recommended to avoid strong heat and sunlight to prevent color loss. Due to Larimar’s photosensitive nature, wearing it as jewelry can fade the gemstone relatively quickly, especially if you spend a lot of time in the sun. If you are wearing a Larimar Necklace - tuck it under your shirt when you are in the sunlight whenever possible to help it preserve its mesmerizing bright blue color.
Be sure not to use harsh chemicals when you clean your Larimar jewelry, as they can easily corrode. When cleaning, use only warm water and a mild soap or detergent. Remove all the soapy residues by washing the gemstone very well. You can wipe it down using a soft cloth.
Always remove all Larimar jewelry before you engage in high-intensity physical activities.
When storing Larimar gemstones, store them away from other gems and jewelry to prevent scratches and fractures. Larimar is a particularly soft gemstone, therefore, it’s important to handle it with care to prevent any marks from appearing! It is best to wrap them in a soft cloth and keep them in a fabric-lined jewelry box.
