About the stones
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.
Blue Topaz is the Birthstone for November.
Blue Topaz has been used in jewellery for over 2000 years. It was once believed that Topaz would protect the wearer from dark magic. In the 12th century Saint Hildegard, a German nun, believed that Blue Topaz could cure blindness by soaking the stone in wine for 3 days and then rubbing it gently on the eyes.
Blue Topaz is a calming stone. It is thought to help with communication, creativity and the ability to express yourself. Great for writers block and to aid with public speaking. It is also thought to help with decision making, promotes concentration and helps recognize truth and wisdom.
