Here, people recognize themselves and their unique spirit with a little patience. Larimar reflects the law "as above" like no other healing stone and reminds that life never stands still, but shows an ups and downs that subjects us to exams, the limits of which we have imposed ourselves as a person.

Larimar jewelry and chains as well as drum stones and flatterers should be cleaned once a week under running water. An amethyst druse is suitable for charging. Larimar should not be charged in direct sunlight because UV radiation allows the beautiful color to fade. UV-poor evening sun is good to revive the forces of the mineral.

Larimar is a healing stone of the element water and can therefore be optimally combined with other healing stones of this element. These include turquoise, Aquamarin, Lapislazuli, Angelite, Sapphire and chalcedon.


Healing stones and gemstones that are assigned to the element of water can provide more endurance and resistance. They make people more active and take responsibility for their own lives.


7. The history of the Larimar


Although Larimar has to exist as long as other healing stones, such as mountain crystal, amethyst and rose quartz, the blue pectolith only appeared late in the healing stone. It was not until 1974 that the Dominican craftsman Miguel Mendez and the American geologist normal rilling searched for the origin of a blue stone that appeared on a beach. First of all, the origin of the blue pectolith in the sea was suspected, since the color and pattern are so similar to the vastness of the ocean. After intensive studies, however, the two men were able to find out that a river washed the stones down from a mountain that was around ten kilometers from the site of the blue stones. Mendez called the stone Larimar, a suitcase word from the name of his daughter (Larissa) and the Spanish word for sea ("Mar").


Rapidly after the discovery of the Larimar, dismantling and the global marketing of the blue stone started, which turned out to be a popular gemstone due to its color.


8. Larimar: determine authenticity and recognize counterfeits


Since the blue Larimar only occurs in the Dominican Republic, color -granted copies of deep blue are rarity that drives counterfeiters and frauds to bring duplicates onto the market. Artificially produced larimars are often too uniformly designed in their coloring. A real Larimar often has white, cloud -like or foamy patterns; Some larimars show translucent places, with most specimens showing little transparency. Using ceramic and glass, many of the properties, especially the white cloud pattern, can be imitated.


Only a precisely testing of density, break, fissap, hardness and line color by specialist staff gives certainty here. Larimar's moh hardness is also the hardness of glass with a 6, which makes it difficult to determine authenticity for laypersons. Nevertheless, the following applies: Bubes and recesses have lost nothing in real Larimar and often indicate a fake. Larimar duplicates made of porcelain and glass can be stare out quickly using a microscope.


9. Larimar: his chemical composition


Larimar belongs to the family of the silicates and is a variety of the Pectolith mineral. This mineral is usually colorless and a little softer than Larimar, which is therefore suitable for jewelry processing. Larimar gets the blue color through traces of vanadium, a soft, bluish shimmering metal. The green coloring of some specimens can be attributed to grid errors in the crystal. These are structural "errors" in the development of the mineral, which lead to special peculiarities in the shape, color and appearance of a crystal.


• Mohen hardness: 6 (harder than pectolith)

• Chemical formula: NACA2 (Si3o8oh)

• Color: blue, turquoise to green; White-swocked or grained

• Mineral class: silicates and germanats

• Shine: glass gloss, silk gloss

• Crystal system: Triklin

• Break: uneven, brittle


10. Occurrence and origin of the Gemstone Larimar


If you look at a Larimar, your origin can hardly be denied. The stone from the Caribbean with its turquoise blue color and the cloud -like patterns occurs exclusively in a mine in Los Chupaderos, in the south of the Dominican Republic and in Sierra de Bahoruco in Barahona. There is also a location of Larimar in Europe. However, the specimens from Fittà at Soave in Italy do not have the striking blue color of the blue pectolith from the Dominkan Republic, which is why they are not important on the jewelry and gems market, but are only of interest in mineral collectors.
