Also known as Blue Pectolite, Larimar has long been associated with the energy of elemental Water and one of its common names is 'Dolphin Stone'. It is said to be cooling, cleansing and calming and a particularly useful stone for for people with a hot temper or a fiery nature.
Larimar is often used in conjunction with water for healing or magic. A piece of Larimar left in a bowl of consecrated water for three hours is said to imbue the liquid with healing, cleansing powers. It can then be used to wash people, objects or rooms clean of negative energy while also soaking them in positive, healing energy. The simplest way to benefit from the energy of Larimar is to just lie back and relax in the bath with a piece of this stone.
Larimar has become a popular healing stone, said to be effective for fighting infections, fevers and other 'hot' conditions. It is also believed to help you cleanse your mind of bad memories or old traumas that still cause you stress and prevent you from achieving full health. Some healers believe Larimar can correct chemical imbalances in the brain and therefore can be used to help the overt emotional symptoms of these imablances, like depression and anxiety.
Larimar is often a popular stone for people who have an aggressive or fiery nature, as it is said to help them balance their Fire with elemental Water. A good way to work on this is to meditate regularly with Larimar; a couple of minutes every day seems to be more effective than a long session once a week. Over the course of a few months Larimar should soothe your anger and turbulent emotions, focus your great energy on contructive outlets and train your thoughts to be calmer and clearer.
