Crystal Meanings – Larimar
Crystal Meanings – part III
It is time to present another beautiful oceanblue stone that Syster P is using to create lovely collections. This stone is found in two collections; Adorable and Scarab. In this post I will tell you short about the meaning, history and properties about larimar.
Blue oceans and white clouds
In 1974 a man by the name of Miguel Méndez found the stone in the dominican republic, on a beach in the Barahoma province. The natives thought larimar derived from the ocean and passed this story to Mendez. ”Mar” in spanish means ocean, and Méndez beloved douughers name was Larissa.
So the ocean blue stone therefore was named Larimar.
Some people say, I would guess, women, that larimar nurtures the pregnant women´s body to relieve any depression and/or stress she might feel. There are also stories about larimar´s power to awaken the power of feminism and to sooth emotions.
Other traditions tell us the larimar teaches people to respect each, love and nurture one and each other. It said to block unhealthy emotional blocks and to release attachments we might suffer badly from.
Love & Cheers!
