Larimar is a very rare semi precious gemstone found only in one location in the world: the Dominican Republic. The unique azure blue gem is formed in lava tubes when hot gases push crystallized minerals up through volcanic tubes. The name Larimar was created by Dominican Miguel Mendez, combing his daughter’s name Larissa and the Spanish word for sea, mar. Larimar is considered a healing stone, especially for speech and communication.
The green sea turtles, called ‘honu’, live in Hawaiian waters. Observing one of these graceful creatures is a special experience. Petroglyphs of turtles can be found in the Hawaiian islands, etched into stones centuries ago by native people. The ‘honu’ symbolize guardian spirits and are cherished as a symbol of peace, good luck, and longevity.
