Larimar is said to have been originally discovered in the early 1900s by a Spanish priest; however, this story has not been substantiated. It was later rediscovered in 1974 by Norman Rilling and Miguel Mendez. Miguel combined his daughter's name, Larissa, with the word "mar" (meaning "sea" in Spanish) to come up with the stone's name. Miguel and Norman went on to find the outcropping located in Los Checheses.
The most abundant concentration of larimar is found at Los Checheses in the town of Los Chupaderos, about 6 miles from Barahona. Most of the small blocks of larimar are still in the place where they formed. However, over time blocks have been transported through erosion. Some of these blocks made their way to the Caribbean Sea, which explains why larimar was initially found in the beaches of Barahona.
Hot gases push the larimar into tubes located in the volcano where larimar is found. The tubes are the first structures that must be located before the gem can be extracted. The miner extracts the stone using basic tools, including picks, shovels and hammers. There are no modern amenities available to the miners except for electricity and air pumps, resulting in dangerous work conditions for the miners. Additionally, miners are subjected to the potential for cave-ins, floods and mudslides.
The stone also goes by the names of Love, Dolphin and Atlantis stone. Some people believe the original location where larimar was found is part of the lost city of Atlantis. The gem is said to have powers of emotional, mental and spiritual healing. Many also believe that the stone stimulates the heart, throat, third eye and crown chakras resulting in inner wisdom.
Larimar stone, also known as blue pectolite and dolphin stone, is a pectolite crystal, found on islands in the Caribbean. It is a relatively new metaphysical crystal, first being mined in the 1970s, although it was first discovered earlier in the century.

To understand the energy of the larimar stone it is important to look at this healing crystal's elemental origins. According to geologists, the gemstone has a volcanic origin. It comes from the inner fires of the earth, and may even be marked with threads of red coloring.
Also, unlike the majority of metaphysical crystals, larimar is only found, at least at this point, on Caribbean islands, specifically the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas. The soft blues, greenish-blues, and grays reflect the colors of the Caribbean Sea, and the larimar gemstone is deeply connected to the waters. The whorls of white represent the air.
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.

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.
