So much is written about the metaphysical properties of Larimar.
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. It is recommended for people who are stressed and it is said to be a healing stone.
Because Larimar is recommended for stress, in The Book of Stones (Berkeley, CA: North Atlantic Books, 2007) by Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian, it is said Larimar can be helpful for for phobias, panic attacks, stress-related imbalances, and excessive anger or fear.
They also say it aids in breaking down the walls one has built around the heart for defense, and allows for emotional release and the clearing of deep emotional patterns. It helps one to reconnect to a previous, more natural state of playfulness and joyful childlike energy.

In The Book of Stones, Robert Simmons writes "Larimar is a stone of tremendous benefit to the throat chakra, providing the power of clear communication and the emotional strength and stability that enable one to speak from the heart. . . .
"It supports a state of confident well-being and awareness of one's capacities."
"Relaxation is one of the benefits of Larimar. It soothes the emotional body, releasing undesirable attachments and relieving stress. Wearing the stone, one feels surrounded in an oasis of calm, always aware of the fundamental 'all-rightness' of the world, regardless of transient circumstances. Larimar can cool hot tempers and guide excess passion into peace."
"In meditation, Larimar can help one see and release oneself from unhealthy inner bonds to other people, or to principles which do not serve one's highest good."
"Placing Larimar stones in one's home or work environment will assure a pleasant and serene atmosphere. Using the stone on the throat chakra in a pendant or in a laying-on-the-stones treatment, will help to unleash the voice of one's deepest wisdom."
And, while no one knows for sure about the effects of Larimar, no one can deny its obvious beauty and the impact of a stone this glorious is indisputable.
Could Larimar be your birthstone?
We are all fairly familiar with the list of traditional birthstones. But, there are actually a couple of other ways to determine “new age” birthstones, according to Judy Hall in her book, The Crystal Bible.
One alternate way is to find the “natural birthstone” using the Color Wheel of Life. And, others use the traditional stones of the zodiac.
While Larimar is not a traditional birthstone or a traditional stone of the Zodiac, according to Ms. Hall, it is a “natural birthstone”!
Larimar which is blue in color is one of the natural birthstones of those born as the world awaits the vernal equinox and spring (February 19 - March 19). This is a time when new life is about to burst forth, a time of faith and trust. Blue crystals bring you patience and respect.
Larimar which is turquoise in color is one of the natural birthstones of those born as spring begins (20 March to 19 April). Turquoise crystals bring you discovery and balance. Their vibrations help you find yourself and return to equilibrium.
