    Larimar

    Supports healing, aids clarity of communication.


    An active throat chakra stone, Larimar is a highly spiritual stone that works effectively within all of the chakras, from the heart through the crown. It has a distinct vibration that aids communication, and because of its heart based energy, it especially helps with speaking your emotions. It can assist in dissolving emotional barriers and releasing stored negative emotions like angry thoughts, remembered pain and other detrimental feelings that are not benefiting you. Larimar is also known as the Atlantis Stone. 


    Larimar is a rare and exotic stone that is solely mined in the Dominican Republic. It is most commonly a blue stone, but can also be found in red, black, white and green. It was initially discovered early in the 1900's by a Spanish priest but never mined. In 1974 it was rediscovered in the volcano by American Peace Corps volunteers Norman Rilling and Miguel Mendez while they were working in the area. Residents used to find it on the beaches and thought that it came from the sea. Broken off pieces had been washing down the river to the sea from the volcano. The name Larimar is a combination of Miguel Mendez's daughter's name Larissa, and Mar, which is the Spanish word for sea. 


    Onyx

    Encourages inner strength, willpower, discipline and reason

     

    This black stone is helpful to those learning challenging new material, as it is known to focus one’s energy and attention to detail. Onyx is felt to help calm nerves, quell anxiety and bring reason to wild passion. It brings about emotional neutrality.
