Happy New Year 2013 everyone! Starting a year with the beautiful heart and loving spirit, I believe that this year will be the best year ever for all of us. My mission this year is to always have a joy in my heart and dedicate my best to everything I do. And the rest will surely follow.
I am the one who always passionate about the natural stones, as you can feel their power and meaningful energy lies underneath.
Have you ever heard of the “Larimar Stones”? They may look similar to Turquiose but Larimar is bluer and lighter.
Larimar could be found on the Earth’s crust in the true tubular chimneys. Back then, they were found and mined straight down in the volcano by the Dominican miners. Larimar could be graded by its coloration starting from white to intense blue. The whiter ones were considered to be in the lower quality and quoted in the lower prices. But the bluish color like volcanic blue is more costly as it comes in higher quality. Some pieces may come in the greenish colors.
Coloration is one of the factors to its prices. The stone cutting is also another factor as there is a tremendous loss of material. The precisely cut bead or a perfectly shaped cabochon is more costly than a freeform one.
Larimar stone has its beautiful meaning as some believe that it has the amazing healing power from the source of the Caribbean Sea, where Atlantis is located. The stones could also soothe the emotions and rebuild the calmness especially for the women who wear them.
These Larimar stones would look perfectly together with the silver chains, pearls or red corals. You could simply match them with the maxi dress or your formal outfit to work or even your Bohemian look.
So my recommendation to choose the Larimar stones is simple like all the jewelry. Every piece you purchase or wear should be one you truly love, regardless of how others rate or grade it. Ultimately it is you who puts value in stones. So, Keep in mind to look for something unique and make you look beautiful and confident.
