The enchanting Larimar, also known as, “The Atlantis Stone” or “The Dolphin Stone” is an exceptionally rare crystal that can only be found in one place in the world. That is in the Dominion Republic, in the Caribbean. Larimar is a dreamy ocean-blue variety of silicate mineral pectolite. Its striking colors range from white, tan/beige, brown, light blue, turquoise, green, and deep blue which share a distinct resemblance to the ocean. Only few even know about the existence of this breathtakingly beautiful crystal, because of its scarcity and rarity! It has powerful healing properties on all levels mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical. Larimar truly encapsulates the essence and energy of the ocean.

It is probable that the Taino Natives knew about the precious Larimar stone well before Columbus arrived. However, this information was not yet documented.
According to records from The Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Mining, a man named Father Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren, of the Barahona Parish, first discovered this stone, and requested permission to explore and dig for a specific blue rock on November 22nd of 1916. At that time, Pectolites were not yet known to the Dominican Republic, and his request was declined.
In 1957, local fishermen found fragments of blue stone on the beach shore, which we now know of as Larimar. They believed that these blue stones were washed up and brought in by the ocean, and it was not further investigated until later.
Later in 1974, Miguel Méndez and Norman Rilling rediscovered Larimar in the Bahoruco Mountain Range on a beach. The Natives of the area believed that this blue stone came from the ocean. The Natives gave it the name, “Blue Stone”. Méndez and Rilling birthed the name “Larimar” by combining the name of Miguel’s daughter, “Larissa”, and the Spanish word for sea (mar) which reflected the colors of the Caribbean Sea where it was discovered. Creating the name, Larimar.
The renowned psychic Edgar Cayce predicted that the Caribbean Islands were remnants of the City of Atlantis, and on these islands, a blue stone would be found which held miraculous healing benefits and esoteric knowledge of Atlantis. Larimar is said to be an important tool in the Atlantean’s healing work. Cayce believes that Larimar is actually remnants, literal pieces, of Atlantis.
“The Dolphin Stone” is another popular name for Larimar because of the dolphins association with Atlantis. Larimar has also been used as a tool to enhance communication with the dolphins, and recover the lost knowledge of Atlantis. In some specimens of Larimar, you may even be able to see what looks like pictures of dolphins, Greek architectural columns, angels, sandy beaches, and waves of the ocean.
Larimar has a definite spiritual connection with Dolphin energy and the Delphinus constellation at 15 degrees Aquarius. “In Greek mythology, Delphinus represents the dolphin sent by the sea god Poseidon to fetch Amphitrite, a goddess of the sea and one of the fabled Nereids.” – earthsky.org
The hardness of Larimar is about 4.5-5 on the Moh’s Hardness Scale, and the darker blue or green specimens range closer to 5-7 on the Moh’s Hardness Scale.
“Larimar is composed of Silicates of Calcium and Sodium Hydrate with Magnesium; these elements do not represent any danger of toxicity to humans.” – EarthAuraStudio. You may use this crystal with the direct-infusion method to charge your water at your own risk.

Larimar is highly attuned to and stimulates the Heart (Thymus and Upper Heart Chakras), Throat, Third Eye, and Crown Chakras.

Larimar opens up these Chakras, clears out energy blockages in these areas, and balances these upper four Chakras.
Larimar heals and enlightens on all levels mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical. Larimar is an incredibly high vibrational stone; it is considered to be one of the highest vibrational crystals. Larimar combines the energy of the ocean with the energy of the heavens. This means that Larimar connects to our emotions (water), our thoughts (air), and the Divine (spirit).
There are numerous ways that you could use Larimar and benefit from its Divine effects. We suggest that you wear it close to the heart on a necklace, and wear it for about a week. Wear it during stressful situations such as job interviews, tests, court, and meetings. Wear it when you’re creating, writing, or painting.

“In meditation, Larimar can help one see and release oneself from unhealthy inner bonds to other people, or to principles which do not serve one’s highest good.” – The Book of Stones
Larimar is a powerful stone to meditate with as it supports a deeper meditative state and deeper levels of consciousness easily. Some feel the urge to sing while meditating with Larimar as it shares a connection with the dolphins. Using your voice in the act of singing is medicine itself. Singing moves energy and helps it to become unblocked. Singing has been a source of medicine and healing in humans since the day we placed our feet on the soils of Earth. Singing stimulates the Vagus Nerve (vagal nerves) which are the main nerves in our parasympathetic nervous system. This system controls specific bodily functions such as the digestive system, immune system, heart rate, and is also responsible for our fight or flight response. The Vagus Nerve runs from your pelvic bowl all the way up through your larynx, to the brain.
Larimar is a powerful crystal in the Manifestor’s toolkit. This crystal harnesses and amplifies the Universal power of Manifestation. In order to manifest, we must become a vibrational match to our manifestations and this crystal carries such an incredibly high vibration. Meditate with your specimen and program your intentions into the crystal. Be as specific as possible when setting your intentions, because you’ll get exactly what you ask for. To set an intention, you are giving it direction or purpose. Place the Larimar in your hand and focus on your intentions as if they have already happened. Say it out loud or write it down. Carry your Larimar with you throughout the day.
Here are some ways that you can use Larimar in your home or work spaces Feng Shui. You may also carry this stone around with you in a soft pouch, or incorporate it into jewelry.

We recommend Larimar: “The Stone of Atlantis” to those who were born with their fourth house in Aquarius, eleventh house in Cancer, sixth house in Cancer, Saturn in Cancer, and Sun/birth planets in either Cancer or Aquarius.
Larimar is an excellent crystal for Sirian starseeds. Larimar is loaded with information for the healing of the Sirian Starseeds here on Earth. This would be an excellent crystal for those working with QHHT (Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique, developed by Dolores Cannon) and Past Life Regression who hold a connection with Sirius. Larimar holds a “like-home” frequency for Sirian starseeds due to its aquatic energy and deep connection with the dolphin. Sirians helped co-create the genetic makeup of dolphins and whales on the planet Earth, which is why many Sirian starseeds may incarnate as dolphins, whales, or crustaceans. Many of the Sirian Starseeds on this planet today hold a deep connection to the City of Atlantis and Ancient Egypt.
Larimar is a little bit more expensive than most crystals because of its rarity.
-Pair with Moldavite when you’re feeling strong. I suggest wearing Larimar alone first for about a week before pairing it with Moldavite. Larimar softens the energy of Moldavite.
-Pair with Moonstone or Labradorite for enhanced intuition, psychics, and healers.
-Pair with Lemurian Seed Quartz when working with QHHT and Past Life Regression in connection with Lemuria and Atlantis.

It is important to keep your Larimar cleansed and charged, as you would with any of your other crystals and tools. Think of your Larimar as a sentient being who works energetically; it processes lots of energy and should be cleaned and refreshed often.
To clean Larimar: Use warm water with mild dish soap and dry thoroughly, or use warm water with a silver polishing cloth and dry thoroughly. Avoid using ultrasonic cleaners or steamers. Larimar is a relatively soft stone, so you’ll want to store it away from harder crystals to avoid damage. We suggest storing it in a soft pouch. High heat, other chemicals, and rough handling should be avoided. Larimar would be easily damaged if worn as a bracelet or ring. If you want to wear Larimar jewelry, opt for necklaces or earrings. If the specimen fractures, the white needles of pectolite/larimar can be razor-sharp and stiff which easily penetrate the skin. Once they have penetrated into the skin, they appear invisible. The pieces are brittle and difficult to remove, often quite excruciating. Handle with caution at all times. If your specimen fractures in your hands, do not rub your hands after handling. Rinse your hands in a strong stream of water before handling anything else, especially food. Do not leave your specimen in direct sunlight for prolonged amounts of time because it is photosensitive and this may result in its colors fading.
