Larimar is a rare, blue variety of Pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic, which is located in the Caribbean. 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.
It is a turquoise colored crystal with sky blue coloring and occasional swirls of white patterning. This crystal is said to resemble sea water in its coloring. Larimar ranges from partially translucent to opaque with a silky to glassy luster.
Larimar is a high vibration stone that connects to both the Thymus (second Heart) and Throat Chakras. It is often used in self-healing or laying-on of stones. Larimar is a stone of communication, clarity and truth. It brings calm and balance to any situation, removing stress and negativity. Larimar will help to embrace change and move through the process effortlessly. This is such a joyous piece to keep with you! Carry in pockets, pouches or medicine bags.
Larimar resonates with the gentle, soothing energy of water, bringing a sense of tranquility and a reminder to “go with the flow”. It carries a strong energetic connection to dolphins and the sea.
Larimar is a nurturing stone, which stimulates the process of healing to body, mind and soul. Larimar can assist in identifying and understanding behaviors caused by old patterns/programs that effectively sabotage the self, and allow for their release.
Larimar helps to achieve a deep meditative state, a connection with higher vibrational energy that enhances communication with angels, guides, guardians and Source.
Larimar can assist with chemical imbalances, mood disorders and infections.

LARIMAR is an excellent gemstone to wear or carry daily. As a retired University Professor and a Gemstone Therapist, Reiki Master/Teacher, and a Meditation Teacher, I recommend LARIMAR as one of the best gemstones to work with during these transforming times on planet Earth driven by such cosmic energetics as our galaxy moving through the Photon Belt, by coronal mass ejections of radiation, by gamma rays, and many other actions of the cosmos. This gemstone can alleviate the physical, mental, and emotional challenges that many people are experiencing. Such challenges are also being brought on by various kinds of crisis situations in the world like political chaos, economic problems, and social strife. In order to be calm, relaxed, and healthy, we need to connect with our Higher Selves for guidance, and LARIMAR can elevate our consciousness to that realm of Divine connection. Its soothing blue color reminds us of water and oxygen, and thus upon sight, begins to relax the central nervous system. When wearing or holding it, its vibrational frequency moves through our auric fields and eventually into our cellular memory for re-setting, clearing, cleansing, and purification. Again, this is a fabulous gemstone for these times of seemingly unprecedented change. It can truly heal physical imbalances, anxieties of the mind, and emotional traumas. It is an angelic gemstone.
