Larimar is a type of pectolite. It is found only in The Dominican Republic. The blue colour is supposed to represent the ocean and the stone is associated with the sea. It is said to bring cleansing and renewal and promotes mental and physical healing and health. It helps bring tranquility and peace after sudden storms and can be used as a focus for all forms of mediation. It encourages self expression and builds self-awareness. It encourages empathy and understanding of others, but helps build clear boundaries so that you do not become overwhelmed by other people's demands and needs. Spiritually very refreshing -- a drop of clear water for the soul.
