Larimar Meaning & Properties

Healing Properties of Larimar

Larimar is a stone of relaxation. It radiates peace and is one of the best stones for soothing and transforming both anger and anxiety. This makes it a great stone to place around your home or office, especially if you are trying to encourage a calm and serene atmosphere.

Larimar supports the throat chakra, which is the home of communication and truth. It helps in communicating clearly from the heart without emotional confusion.

This soft blue stone carries the energy of the sea and the Divine Feminine. It invites a gentle realignment of your being to release the ego’s striving and rest. It also helps with releasing attachments to what is no longer serving you. It is useful for emotional processing, allowing for release and healing.

Larimar helps you access your innate wisdom and walk with the quiet confidence of knowing who you are. This is a form of power that comes from deep within.

It is also great to wear as a personal stress relief and self-care talisman. It is calming and nourishing and supports you to clearly communicate boundaries. It encourages you to love yourself by honoring your needs. It supports you to stay in the present, and accept and embrace your current reality.

In essence, Larimar helps you align yourself with the Divine truth of who you are. You are good, you are love, and all is well.

Larimar Mineral & Gemstone Information

Larimar is a striking sky blue stone found only on the Caribbean island nation of the Dominican Republic. It is a variety of pectolite, a silicate mineral. It was originally discovered by a priest in 1916 but only developed as a gemstone after being rediscovered in 1974 by Miguel Méndez who found a specimen on the beach. He named it after his daughter (Larissa) and the Spanish word for the sea (mar). The gem was traced back to an area in the mountains, which was subsequently mined for more stones.

Larimar can fade if exposed to too much light or heat, so it’s best to wear it under your shirt or only indoors or for short periods of time.
