Larimar is also called the Atlantis Stone, because a Spiritual Master who once lived in Trinidad & Tobago and who founded many Yoga Centres in the Caribbean, United States, Australia, and South America claimed some islands in the Caribbean, particularly the Dominican Republic, were in fact part of the sunken continent Atlantis.
Edgar Cayce, “The Sleeping Prophet” (1877 - 1945), indicated
that part of Atlantis could be found in the Caribbean. He also indicated that one
would find a blue stone with extraordinary healing attributes, a description that
corresponds to Larimar.
Other sources in Europe have ratified the widespread belief that the island where Haiti and the Dominican Republic are situated, was indeed part of the Atlantis continent.
It is well known that the Larimar gemstone, the blue beauty of the Caribbean, exists only in one region in the world, close to Baoruco, province of Barahona, Dominican Republic, not far from the border to Haiti, and hence the popularisation of the name Atlantis Stone.
In Europe in the 1980s, Larimar was commonly known as the Atlantis Stone and even today, customers at mineral and gem shows as well as Metaphysical shows and events, often refer to and seek the Atlantis Stone, rather than Larimar.
Many believe that the colours of Larimar also represent a trace to Atlantis and there are books about Atlantis that mention Larimar as an important tool for healing work.
Mother Earth gave this special gemstone to human beings in the seventies, and the appearance of Larimar coincides with the emergence of information about Atlantis.
Sensitive persons can feel and see the information about Atlantis carried by Larimar. Today, there are thousands of people - naturalists and those who practice alternative and holistic healing methods - who use Larimar to assist and reinforce the healing process.
