Yes, everyone loves larimar.
They just do. C’mon… who doesn’t?
So, today I’m coming to you with the Dolphin Stone; Larimar.
I love this stone.
Known as the Dolphin Stone, some people even call it the Mermaid Stone or the Stone of Atlantis. As I show you in the vid, it’s a sky-blue stone, although it does vary a bit in its intensity and hue.
Larimar is a type of pectolite, which is a sodium calcium silicate that forms in cavities of basaltic lava and found in only one place on the planet, the Barahona region mines in the Dominican Republic:
Larimar measures 4.5 to 5.0 on the Mohs hardness scale so not too soft. You can certainly make jewelry from it. There’s some white in there, and lots of watery blue. Sometimes it even goes into a green hue. You can learn more about the geology of larimar here.
Larimar always shows up in masses. You’re never going to see crystals of Larimar. It’s always a mass, but a gorgeous one!
In the pendant I have, there’s a little bit of red in it, due to some hematite inclusions… so a wee bit of grounding with my water energy here.
With its blue color, it’s obviously a Throat Chakra Stone:
- very calming and soothing
- allows you to communicate effectively
- taps into ocean & dolphin energy
- carries divine feminine energy
- also really great for tapping into goddess energy
It is a really wonderful stone to have in your collection. I absolutely love it.
When you’re just looking for something to be very calming + gentle, Larimar is your stone.
When working with this stone, I feel such a close connection to the ocean. I really, really love this.
In fact, I got mine in a place that also gives me that great connection to the ocean, Atlantis & Mermaid Energy. It was nowhere near the Dominican Republic, but rather in Maui, Hawaii.
In fact, I am going to show you a picture of this gigantic necklace that I saw in Maui made of Larimar. They’re just nuts about Larimar on Hawaii in general. I can see why… larimar energy and Hawaii energy resonate so well.
Look at this piece! It is huge.
I mean — I don’t think this piece was actually meant for anybody to wear because you’d be stooped over like a hunchback with a cane if you did. Your chiropractor would absolutely love you though.
But what a great conversation piece ~ It certainly got me talking! ♥

So, do have a heavenly piece of Larimar that you wear or work with for its crystal energy or in meditation? We’d all love to hear about it. Tell us about it in the comments below!
