I love wearing all black but I couldn’t resist wearing my new favorite Larimar ring. Not only do I love this ring because it goes with my Yurman bracelets (the pearl one was my Christmas gift) but because it is believed to have healing powers. You read right, healing powers! The pretty blue stone is know as the Atlantis Stone, which is worn to relieve stress and aid for fluid communication.

Larimar is found only in the Caribbean waters of the Dominican Republic where it’s said to be a part of the legendary Atlantis. An ancient prophet once declared that what made Atlantis special was its blue gem that bears healing powers. Because of its striking resemblance, Larimar is then named as the Atlantis Stone.

Since it’s created by volcanic activity, crystal lovers and spiritual healers also began seeing the gem as a powerful throat chakra stone that aids in expression of emotions and balances water and fire energy. Beyond its enchanting guise, it holds wondrous meaning and it catapulted our fascination to something greater.

Growing up on the water, I am intrigued by anything that stems from or lives in the deep blue. So when I read the snippet above on Larimar.com’s site, I had to have a piece from this beautiful collection.
