Introduction to the Meaning and Uses of Larimar
Larimar is the embodiment of the tranquil Sea and Sky energies. Its soft, soothing blues and calming turquoise is streaked with white patterns that resemble sunlight dancing beneath Caribbean waters. It brings the ancient wisdom of Atlantis and the healing power of dolphins to harmonize the body and soul.
Larimar is one of the cardinal Water element stones, yet is born of Fire in its volcanic origins. One of the few crystals to balance the polarities of these energies, Larimar cools tempers and calms fears, relieves stress and nurtures the physical and emotional bodies. It is powerful in meditation and in connecting to the Divine Feminine, and is particularly helpful in releasing emotional bonds, patterns or principles that no longer serve the highest good. A stone of clear communication, it provides the strength and courage needed to speak openly from the heart. [Simmons, 228-229][Ahsian, 229]
A rare blue variety of Pectolite, Larimar is found only in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. It occurs as needle-like crystals, grown together in a solid mass and forms in cavities within basaltic lava. 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, and may contain red or brown areas of oxidation or Hematite inclusions. The more intense the blue and contrast within the stone, the rarer and higher its value. Note: blue is photosensitive and may fade over time if exposed to too much light or heat.
Larimar is also known as the Dolphin Stone, Blue Pectolite, Atlantis Stone, and Stefilia's Stone. Originally discovered in 1916, it was named by the Dominican who re-discovered it in 1974, taking the first letters of his daughter's name, Larissa, and the Spanish word for the sea, mar, to create Larimar.
Larimar Uses and Purposes - Overview
Larimar is a crystal of serenity, promoting relaxation in every aspect. Use as a worry stone, or place in the home or workplace to assure a pleasant atmosphere. Hold as you sit on the seashore, or gaze into the sea-like patterns of the stone, to reconnect with the ebbs and flows of your inner tides. As you sit in a bath surrounded by blue candles, use Larimar to connect with the healing powers of the dolphin through visualization or dolphin call music. Simply wearing Larimar creates a fundamental awareness of the "all-rightness" of the world. [Simmons, 228-229][Eason, 241]
Use Larimar to overcome fear of doctors, hospitals, injections or surgery. It promotes clear and confident communication with health personnel. [Eason, 241]
Larimar is a wonderful stone for mothers, during and after pregnancy. It helps in alleviating post-partum depression, and relaxes the stress associated with new parenthood. [Ahsian, 230]
As a soothing Water element stone, Larimar cools hot tempers and guides excessive passion into peace. It may be used to diminish the frequency and intensity of hot flashes, and when one's kundalini energies have become uncomfortably active. [Simmons, 229]
As a crystal of the Throat Chakra, using Larimar in a pendant or laying-on-of-stones treatment will unleash the voice of one's deepest wisdom. Singers may also find Larimar a wonderful talisman for enhancing and protecting the voice. [Simmons, 229]
Larimar is an excellent stone for finding a soulmate. It facilitates the healing of unresolved issues or fears, trauma to the heart, or past-life relationships. [Hall, 174][Eason, 241]
Mermaids are the guardians of the seas. They look after the whales, dolphins, sharks, seals, porpoises, fish and turtles as other sea dwelling creatures. They are the female members of the tribe and the mermen as the masculine members. Mermaids are very friendly elementals and you will find them most easily on rocks out in the sea but they live all over. Mermaids are trying to get our attention at this time to heal the seas and work in harmony with the Ocean Sprites whose job it is to energetically purify the water. They are also willing to heal humans also particularly of emotional problems and traumas. Mermaid energy is very soothing.
