LARIMAR is a form of blue pectolite, a sodium calcium silicate mineral with a hardness of 4.5 to 5. It shows spectacular patterns of blue, blue-green and white. It is found on the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean Sea.
Larimar is a stone that is extremely beneficial for the throat chakra, providing the power of clear communication and the emotional strength and stability to speak from the heart.
It is a stone of feminine power, allowing access to the divine feminine within. It supports a state of confident well-being and a relaxed knowledge of one's own capabilities.
It calms the emotional body, releasing stress and tension. Larimar can cool 'hot' anger and guide excess passion into peace.
It can be used to reduce the frequency and intensity of hot flashes and is a useful antidote when kundalini energies are too active. In meditation, Larimar can help one to see and free oneself from unhealthy inner ties to people or principles that do not serve one's highest good. It opens the way to the 'divine stairs of ascension' on which one leaves behind all outmoded past commitments. Placing Larimar stones in their environment provides a pleasant, peaceful atmosphere.
Larimar works harmoniously with almost all other stones, especially lapis lazuli, azeztulite, moldavite, turquoise and chrysocolla.
