•Speaking your truth, expressing emotions, communication, calming the mind, inner peace•
The two explorers who discovered Larimar decided to call the beautiful stone larimar, a name that combined the Dominican’s daughter’s name, Larissa, with the word Mar, the Spanish word for sea. A unique name for a unique stone.
Larimar is an earth healing stone. It connects with nature and will counteract inbalances in the earth's energy. Larimar helps to heal and tone the throat. By opening up the throat chakra, it promotes self-confidence and encourages us to express our deepest truths and fears. Especially helpful in removing self-imposed blockages and constraints, Larimar assists us in taking control of our lives by dissolving self-sabotaging behaviour, alleviating guilt and removing fear. Larimar is a wonderful meditation stone. It quickly and effortlessly calms the mind and bestows inner peace. It naturally raises consciousness and facilitates contact and communication with the angelic realms. It has a distinct vibration that aids you to communicate with clarity, and because of its heart based energy it helps you to speak of your emotions.
This is a highly spiritual stone that works effectively within all of the chakras from the heart chakra through to the crown chakra, including the higher heart, which aids compassion.
Why is Larimar so expensive?
The Larimar mines are considered artisan mining since they rely mostly on human, physical labor. A cooperative of local villages is responsible for digging up each piece of larimar and they also ensure that members of their local communities are the only ones mining.
Larimar deposits have been found in only one place in the world. A remote mountain range on the island of Hispaniola. The total surface area of the larimar deposits is thought to cover less than a single square mile.
