Gemological info: Named after the Filipinas Larimar Mine in the Dominican Republic where it was found, Larimar is a rare blue mineral variety of pectolite. It is a hydrated sodium calcium silicate with manganese, and it owes its blue colour to the calcium replaced by copper impurities. Larimar’s composition often is mixed with hematite, calcite, iron, potassium, and other materials.
Metaphysical Properties: Larimar stimulates the throat, heart, and crown chakras. Larimar represents healing, love, peace, and clarity and is said to be helpful to people experiencing anxiety and stress. It will help those wearing it to communicate effectively with others by making the other person understand their point of view.
