An Energetic Gemstone
Crystal spiritualists say that larimar holds tranquil sea and sky energy. It is believed to have balancing powers because of its connection to the elements of water, earth and fire.
Larimar was forged by volcanic activity but its colour dances with the ease of the Caribbean sea. Apparently, this gives it the power to calm fiery tempers and soothe a worrying mind.
Many Dominicans use it as a lucky charm, and find comfort in its harmonious, feminine energy. It is also associated with the dolphin, and the animal’s playful wisdom.
The gem is usually set in silver, though high quality larimar is sometimes set in gold.
If you’re interested in learning more about the Dominican local gemstone, you could pay a visit to the Larimar Museum in Santo Domingo.
In Cabarete, you can pop into a larimar jewellery store and see many varieties of the gem. The staff at Yocahu in Cabarete town centre will be happy to talk to you about the stone.
Who knows, maybe the soothing larimar will inspire some peaceful rest in your active Caribbean vacation!
