About the stone
A unique and fairly ‘new’ stone, Larimar can only be found in the Dominican Republic and was first discovered in 1916 but was quickly forgotten about. It was named by Miguel Mendez, the Dominican who re-discovered it in 1974. He combined his daughters name Larissa and the word Mar, Spanish for sea, creating Larimar.
The only known source for Larimar is the Filipinas Mine in Los Checheses. Larimar deposits surface as hot gasses push crystallized minerals up through the volcanic chimneys or tubes. In most cases, miners must dig deep into the volcanic tubes in search of deposits. Very rarely, it can also be found on the shores of the Caribbean, washed up as alluvial deposits carried down by the Bahoruco River.
Larimar is known to represent peace, clarity, healing and love. It is also known to help with stress and anxiety and brings a feeling of calmness to its wearer. It is an empowering stone, removes self-sabotaging behaviour and assists in taking control of one’s life. It is particularly useful for alleviating guilt and removing fear.
At widest points including bale 3.3cm x 1.7cm aprox. Larimar 1.8cm x 1.5cm aprox.
Please be aware that as our stone jewellery is handmade and the stones are natural, dimensions and stone colours may vary slightly.
