Larimar History Mythology Information: Larimar is a very newly discovered stone with it being officially named in 1972 by a volunteer Miguel Menuel who found a specimen on the beach in the Dominican Republic. The local natives believed that the stone came from the sea and called it ‘Blue Stone’ however Miguel Menuel name the stone after his daughter Larissa ‘Lari’ and the Spanish word for sea ‘mar’ due to its wonderful blue colour that resembles the Caribbean Sea thus creating the name ‘Larimar’. Larimar is only found in a remote location in the Dominican Republic and is a blue variety of Pectolite which is a Chain Silicate.
Larimar’s Connection to Atlantis: The well known American Mystic Edgar Cayce predicted that the remains of Atlantis would be found in the Caribbean at some point in the future. With Larimar is only found in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean and the blue stone’s association with water it is found by many to have very strong ties to Atlantis and to dolphins. Dolphins are said to have been in communication with Atlantian. It is said that if you meditate with Larimar you are able to connect to the lost civilization and gain knowledge that is lost when you are ready.

When working with Larimar I have found that it is very much a searching stone. It is a stone I find I gravitate towards and work with when I am ‘looking’ or ‘searching’ for something/someone in my life. When you are after guidance or searching for direction in any area of your life I find that it calls you to help make the path easier and allow your light to shine through. Affirmation: I glid gracefully through life and communication from my heart with ease.
Question: Do I have balance in my life?
Please note that the better the blues in the stone the higher the grade and the more expensive it will be. Larimar will also fade overtime if left in direct sunlight, so when cleansing please us moonlight or Selenite.
Better quality Larimar (deeper blues) is becoming more difficult to find at the moment as they have struck a white vein in the mine. Please be aware I have been seeing dyed Larimar more often recently. You can test if your piece has been dyed by holding a light behind it and if you see both blues and greens while shining the light through it – no matter what the surface colour) it is a good quality Larimar and NOT dyed. Example photo to follow.
