Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furiends

Welcome to another fun week at BBHQ and today, we're continuing our crystal journey. This time, we've got a lovely gemstone to share as Jen asked us; what is larimar good for? 

Crystal of The Week


What is Larimar good for?

Larimar is just one of those stones that draws mew in. They have the most exquisite tones of aqua, bluey-green and turquoise with white, it is a semi-opaque stone in all shades of the aforementioned blue hues. It was only discovered and made available to the gem market as we know it in 1974, and it comes from the Dominican Republic, so it's a relatively new find.

Fudge is wearing one of the P.A.'s favourite pendants, and we do have a few tumble stones too, although they are quite small as larimar can be quite expensive, especially the brighter, aqua blue tones.

Let's tell mew a little bit about the gem lore surrounding this beautiful stone. Larimar is reported to be a very protective crystal, and its name is translation means tranquility. So if mew're looking for more harmony, relaxation and peace in your life this could be worth looking at.

Larimar is also purportedly very spiritual and assists in reaching deeper states of meditation. It is also said to raise consciousness, and helps with spiritual connections, for instance with the angelic realms and/or angelic beings. 

If mew're looking for more going with the flow in life, for instance; if mew feel like mew're constantly swimming upstream, against the flow, this may be one to try, to help dissolve blockages, self sabotaging thoughts/feelings, and assist in moving through life with more fluidity. Try wearing a pendent or bracelet etc... and see if it helps. 

A supurr stone for the throat chakra, although as with all chakra placements, it could be placed wherever mew feel it would be most beneficial.

The P.A. finds wearing crystals as jewellery is far easier than carrying around a pocketful of rocks! MOL  Although she does have a small zip purse in her handbag with an assortment of stones in. 

If mew're drawn to this stone, buying one in purrson is the way to go, as then mew can actually see the stone mew are actually getting. It's difficult to buy some crystals online, and there's nothing worse than opening an internet bought crystal and it's nothing like the one mew thought mew'd bought. Unless the listing says, that mew are definitely getting the one in the picture.

Many thanks for emailing us Jen, and we hope that answered your question.

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
