Emotional Release & Emotional Healing
Found only in the Dominican Republic, Larimar was named after the daughter of the discoverer, Larissa, and the Spanish word for Sea – Mar - LariMar. The stone is formed within basaltic lava in the Caribbean. It occurs as needle-like crystals, grown together in a solid mass. Larimar is a rare blue variety of a mineral called Pectolite; the copper substitution in Pectolite instead of calcium produces beautiful translucent shades of soft blues, white, and turquoise marked with streaks and patterns of white.
It is said Larimar can assist with overcoming fears, depression, and soothes tempers.
