Larimar- my new favorite thing.

August 12, 2016

I’ve always loved turquoise. I remember as a little girl going in my mom’s jewelry box and playing around with her old silver rings and earrings. A couple of them being her turquoise from the 60’s and 70’s. I’ve always had love for that stone. I felt like it was so earthy- it seemed like it was more raw and true to nature than a lot of other stones. As I got older, I stopped wearing it in favor of other gemstones.

But I had never heard of Larimar until recently.

Larimar Bliss ring.

Larimar is a form of mineral that is only found in the Dominican Republic. It’s also known as also called “Stefilia’s Stone.” It is a rare blue variety of the silicate mineral pectolite found only in the Caribbean. Its coloration varies from white, light-blue, green-blue to deep blue.

This is, for me, the *new* turquoise.

It’s not your typical color or texture. Its not just the same old thing. It looks so unique. It’s opaque like turquoise but yet translucent-ish.

I find it to be so gorgeous, don’t you?

I happened to get this ring from Larimar Bliss as a gift, and it arrived right before my birthday. I wore it to dinner that night and I got so many compliments on it. The organic shape is perfect for the stones’ quality and the striations and colors.

It’s the perfect birthday gift for a summer baby like me. It reminds me of the summer sky, the beach, and the ocean, which is where it comes from.

If you’re into the metaphysical;

“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.”

Also, Larimar is said to enlighten and heal in a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual way. It stimulates the heart, throat, third eye and crown chakras facilitating inner wisdom and outer manifestation. It represents peace and clarity, radiating healing and love energy.

In this picture and the others where I’m wearing it, it’s not as easy to see the bright sky blue color. It looks more like turquoise. But the above photos are more true to color.

It reminds me of playing in my mom’s jewelry box again. Except this time it’s mine. Alllllllll miiiiiine.

Larimar. My new fave.

If I had to tell you how many compliments I received on this ring since I first wore it, I couldn’t. I lost track. It’s definitely a conversation piece! And who knew how many people LOVE larimar! I had no idea!

How did I not know about this stone?

How am I the last one to find out about this?!

Anyway, I know now.

Larimar- the new turquoise.

I paired it with my Fossil boyfriend watch with a mint green leather band, and it looked awesome together. I’ve worn in casually with jeans and also dressier with a skirt and it works… no matter what I have on.

Thank you so much to the people at Larimar Bliss for gifting me this lovely ring. And for you, my dear readers, I hope I’ve opened you up to something new – just as I was.

Note: as my disclaimer page states- I accepted no financial compensation for a positive review of Larimar Bliss. I received a ring (approx. $150.00 value) for my own review. They did not tell me what to say. All words and statements are my own.
