Larimar crystals are a type of pectolite mineral that is found exclusively in the Dominican Republic.
They are formed through volcanic activity and are typically a light blue-green colour, although they can also be white or gray.
The name "larimar" was coined by a Dominican man who named the crystal after his daughter Larissa and the Spanish word for sea, "mar," due to its resemblance to the Caribbean Sea.
Larimar crystals promote relaxation and calmness, making them useful for meditation and stress relief.
Larimar crystals can enhance communication and creativity, allowing for more effective expression and self-expression.
Additionally, these crystals are thought to have healing properties, particularly for the throat and third eye chakras.
They are said to promote clear communication and intuition, and may help to alleviate feelings of anxiety or fear.
