Silver Larimar Necklace
This necklace was handmade with a Larimar gem and .925 sterling silver. The 16" chain is also sterling silver.
*Our jewelry can get wet because it is high quality .925 sterling silver. But, we do not recommend it! Our jewelry will never turn your skin green. Although, over long periods of time precious metals oxidize through water exposure because of minerals in water. To preserve the quality over long period of time we suggest minimizing getting jewelry wet. :)*
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.
Larimar was reportedly discovered in 1916 by Father Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren, but wasn't mined until decades later in 1974 when Dominican Miguel Méndez and Peace Corps volunteer Norman Rilling noticed a piece of larimar on the Barahonas province shoreline. Named for Miguel's daughter, Larissa, and "mar," the Spanish word for "sea," larimar captures the exquisite beauty of the Caribbean Sea.
