Larimar the Blue Stone

  Larimar in Ancient Lore and Legend 
  Larimar is sometimes called Atlantis Stone in reference to an ancient prophet's declaration that Atlantis was once part of the Dominican Republic, a claim affirmed by various authorities in metaphysics. He further declared that what made Atlantis great was the beautiful blue stone that carried healing powers. Its description bears an uncanny resemblance to Larimar.
The larimar stone is one of the spiritual crystal healing stones.

Larimar (misspelled: lorimar), also called "Stefilia's Stone", is a rare blue variety of pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean. Its coloration varies from white, light-blue, green-blue to deep blue.
Larimar is quite a rare form of pectolite. 
Often mistaken for translucent turquoise or fine blue jade, larimar mirrors the beautiful waters that surround it's island of origin. The crystal vibration and unique blend of blue, teal, white and other colors have drawn many a people to it's door. 
It reflects the differing colors of the ocean, from deep to light shades of blue, and jade green, often sprinkled with white and gray colors from the clouds in the sky, and then peppered now and again with red dendrites...it is a most incredible site.
The Dominican Republic's Ministry of Mining records show that on 23 November 1916 Father Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren of the Barahona Parish requested permission to explore and exploit the mine of a certain blue rock he had discovered. Pectolites were not yet known in the Dominican Republic and the request was rejected.
In 1974, at the foot of the Bahoruco Range, the coastal province of Barahona, Miguel Méndez and Peace Corps volunteer Norman Rilling rediscover Larimar on a beach. Natives, who believed the stone came from the sea, called the gem Blue Stone. Miguel took his young daughter's name Larissa and the Spanish word for sea (mar) and formed Larimar, by the colors of the water of the Caribbean Sea, where it was found. The few stones they found were alluvial sediment, washed into the sea by the Bahoruco River. An upstream search revealed the in situ outcrops in the range and soon the Los Chupaderos mine was formed.
In metaphysical work, the larimar stone reflects the symbolic meanings of its elemental origins. Related to the sea, it radiates with deep feelings of peace and tranquility, having the power to quell emotions. Water is the element of deep emotions, and the beauty of the Caribbean ocean represents a calm, transcendent place. Few human hearts are not opened to peace and serenity in the face of radiant blue waters.
The volcanic origin, and occasional red markings, enveloped in a sea of soft blue, gray, and white, are indicative of the power of larimar stone to quiet the 'red' emotions — jealousy, anger, rage, and hatred. The color white is connected with the element air, symbolizing larimar's connection with the spiritual, higher realms, and the mind. The blue and white together, imply that this gemstone bridges the emotions with the intellect.
Larimar is considered a spiritual healing stone, and even an earth healing stone, because of its ability to open to new dimensions, and open both individuals and the earth for evolution. 
Meditating with a larimar crystal illuminates an individual's spiritual path, bringing feelings of empowerment and precision of purpose. At the same time, it works to dissolve self-imposed restrictions. Any self-sabotaging energy is released, for the specific purpose of an elevation of consciousness. Larimar stone is also believed to bring angelic contact.
