Why Larimar could be the Lapidot fusion

For day three of Lapidot Anniversary Week (prompt: “fusion”), I’m going to be doing some theorising about why I now believe that Larimar will be the Lapidot fusion, based on the properties of the stone and its usage in crystal healing.

(Source:  w w w . crystalvaults . com / crystal-encyclopedia / larimar – please remove the spaces, I’ve written it like this due to issues with posts not appearing in the tags if they contain external links)

“Larimar is the embodiment of the tranquil Sea and Sky energies”

This immediately reminds me of both Lapis and Peridot.  Lapis, of course, has complete control of the sea and she can fly – and Peridot can also fly when she has her limb enhancers (as well as being the pilot of the Hand Ship in Jailbreak).

“It brings the ancient wisdom of Atlantis”

Hi, Peridot!

“Larimar is one of the cardinal Water element stones, yet is born of Fire in its volcanic origins”

Originally posted by giffing-su

The fact that Larimar has volcanic origins is extremely interesting when you consider that real-life Peridot can be formed in the earth’s mantle (along with Peridotite) – which is something that Peridot herself mentioned in Gem Drill!  We also have the connection to water again as well, making it have relevance to Lapis too.

“Larimar cools tempers and calms fears, relieves stress…”

“Larimar is a crystal of serenity, promoting relaxation in every aspect”

“Larimar is a powerful emotional cleanser and healer, especially for phobias, panic attacks, stress-related imbalances, and excessive anger or fear”

“It helps us moderate aggressiveness and deal with rage”

So, it could greatly benefit both Lapis and Peridot.  They’ve both had more than their fair share of stress and fear, and are both prone to exhibiting very bad tempers and/or aggressive behaviour at times (with Peridot’s explosive tantrums, and Lapis’ brooding and often unforgiving rage).

“The more intense the blue and contrast within the [Larimar] stone, the rarer and higher its value”

This jumps out at me for the fact that this principle also applies to real-life Lapis Lazuli.  Incidentally, Lapis in the show also has a Gem that’s pure blue (as opposed to having any pyrite/calcite inclusions)…

“Larimar is a wonderful stone for mothers”

If you interpret Pumpkin as being the Lapidot “child”, then this certainly takes on some relevancy! Especially considering Peridot’s comment in Gem Harvest about missing the “pitter-patter of full-sized Gem soldiers” (a reference to the expression “hearing the pitter-patter of tiny feet”, which is used when talking about people who are imminently going to have a child) when explaining why she and Lapis decided to grow their field of vegetables in the first place.

“As a soothing Water element stone, Larimar cools hot tempers and guides excessive passion into peace”

Peridot has generally become much calmer since being around Lapis, and seems much more settled nowadays.  Her passionate side is still there, but it’s very much being used for good and peaceful activities nowadays (such as “meep morp” and vegetable-growing).  Could a fusion into Larimar with Lapis help to further calm her, then?

“Larimar is an excellent stone for finding a soulmate”

As Peridot and Lapis barely leave each others’ side, I don’t feel like this point needs any explanation.

“It facilitates the healing of unresolved issues or fears, trauma to the heart, or past-life relationships”

Originally posted by giffing-lazuli

I like the idea that Larimar can help with trauma – considering that Lapis has had a very traumatic life and would appear to be suffering from PTSD and depression as a result of this.  I know the article here is referring to “past-life” relationships, but it could still hold some relevance when you consider the living nightmare in Lapis’ past that was Malachite.

“Larimar assists in identifying self-imposed limitations and self-sabotaging behavior, especially toward martyrdom, and encourages taking control of one’s life. It is particularly useful in admitting guilt, when guilty, and in bringing about a sense of peace in truthfulness.”

Originally posted by venomade

Lapis started to express real guilt for her past actions in Alone At Sea (one such action, of course, was effectively martyring herself in order to protect Steven from Jasper - but deliberately hurting Jasper in the process).  There’s a lot of horror in her past that she still needs a helping hand to cope with.  Likewise, I believe that Peridot is also burdened with a lot of guilt for some of her past actions; which is something that she appears to be bottling up.

Therefore, fusing into Larimar could help them both to make peace with themselves and begin to let go of their pasts.

“It aids in breaking down the walls one has built around the heart for defense, and allows for emotional release and the clearing of deep emotional patterns. It helps one to reconnect to a previous, more natural state of playfulness and joyful childlike energy”

Originally posted by plugeth

I feel like this also has a lot of relevancy.

Again, Peridot is bottling a lot of things up – and quite often, Lapis appears to be putting up a front in order to hide her inner turmoil.  The pair of them do have a lot of playful energy at times, so Larimar could encourage (and completely embody) this.

“It emanates vivaciousness, humor, and a sense of one’s own power”

Peridot is the definition of vivacious!  She and Lapis also have a shared sense of humour (as seen in Gem Harvest, in particular) – and Lapis wields an insurmountable power over water.

“Light blue crystals [such as Larimar] help us accept the life we have, develop patience, reconcile differences, or seek forgiveness. They’re excellent for recovery efforts from addictions or destructive patterns, aid in curbing tempers, and help us become more dependable and cheerful. Light blue crystals also assist in dealing with grief, letting go of the past, and curing guilt”

I really think that this speaks for itself.

“[It] tempers excess, restores calm after a storm, relieves stress, and neutralizes extremes”

Originally posted by cartoon-epileptic

This scene in particular was both a metaphorical and literal “calm after the storm”.

“Larimar also utilizes … a fresh, welcome energy that moves us to serenity as new growth and life emerges. It brings hope, discovery and balance”

Much like Lapis and Peridot having a fresh start on Earth, discovering this wonderful new planet together… and even creating new life together.

Small tip if you want to reblog a post with its tags

Okay so a lil thing that happens once in a while is people wanting to keep my tags comments on my posts when they reblog (I do tend to rant a LOT in my tags haha). While it’s not a big deal and this is in no way meant to call you out if you do it, as the creator it can be a teeny bit disorienting because the tags are where I often talk about my personal opinions/feelings while creating the piece.

So if I see someone reblog it and they copy all my tags into their tags, when I read the tags of the post (which I do pretty much all the time), I get a lil shock bc I see someone who isn’t me talking about the art piece like they drew it (in my own words).

AGAIN, not a huge deal but here’s a tiny tip on how to keep those tags in your reblog without freaking out the artist, that also gives you a place to put YOUR comments and differentiate the two ^ ^

First, copy all the tags.

THEN, instead of pasting them into the actual tags section, copy them into the text comments section of your reblog. They’ll still show up with hashmarks and it’ll be very clear that they’re originally tags!

After the tags, add who the tags are from, your source. For example, just: Source @yukipri works for me, or if you want to specify that I’m the original poster (instead of just someone else’s cool comments you found) Source OP, @yukipri etc. You can also add tags from people other than the OP!

Example:

​​#YukiPri rambles#Tumblr tips#reblogging#tags#Yep so just like this I'mma ramble in the tags as I always do#Like no seriously this isn’t a big deal so please don’t feel bad if you’ve done it before#It was confusing for me at first too#and there’s no handy full guide to Tumblr etiquette#I’m not even saying this is in the universal tumblr etiquette handbook either#just what I personally would prefer you do in my posts ^ ^;#and is also just nice on any posts so if there’s something cool in the tags i can see it#even if you just reblog#and so I can also find out who said it#this is important haha#it may not seem like a big deal but please credit comments <3  Source OP @yukipri

This leaves the actual tags section for anything YOU want to add, and it’s very clear whose thoughts they are <3

Anyway it occurred to me that not everyone may know/have thought about reblogging tags this way, so hope this was helpful to some of you ^ ^;

Thank you so much to all everyone who reblogs my content and adds comments in the tags! <3

Reference Guide for Project Zero [Read on AO3]


  • Katie ‘Pidge’ Holt
  • Matt Holt
  • Samuel Holt
  • Name: Escherra en Haari
  • Population: Approximately 12 billion (Galaxy-wide estimates)
  • General Information: Escherra en Haari is a large planet classified as a Super Earth due to its size. Higher than earth gravity has created a planet with scattered archipelagos separated by shallow seas, leading to high levels of biodiversity and climates across the planet. Escherra en Haari orbits a red dwarf star, meaning that most plant and animal life appears to be an undifferentiated blue or black to human visitors. Native residents are capable of seeing a wide band of light waves and bright colors not visible to the human eyes. The planet is currently classified as: QUARANTINED.
  • The Quvari diaspora occurred about 100 earth years ago after Galra Harvest ships appeared in the Escherra system. It is believed that Quvari research into taboo technology, such as artificial intelligence and robotics may have attracted Galra attention. Even after so many years, pockets of resistance still exist on the planet’s surface as the surviving population has retreated underground. Sporadic bouts of guerrilla violence are still common.
  • The majority have abandoned the planet and have taken to a more nomadic life on re-purposed space ships. Many space stations and trading ports have large Quvari refugee populations. Do to their refugee status and work in robotics, cybernetic implants, and other forbidden technology, they are often treated as unwanted second-class beings and shunned from most Galactic Coalition political power.
  • Appearance: To most humans, Quvari appear as almost androgynous beings with light blue to dark blue skin. Under their native light, Quvari are actually covered in brightly colored and often fluorescent natural pigmentation that is undetectable to human vision. It is believed that the Quvari can live upwards of 600 earth years.
  • Sex and Reproduction: Although among the oldest of the species in the Galactic Community, there is little available data into the genders, sex, and reproduction habits of the Quvari. It is speculated that they are physically incapable of mating with species outside of their own, or their bodies produce proteins toxic to other Class I-Class V humanoid species, including humans. The reality is that any academic questions into their mating habits is met by a firm, yet polite “not your business.” Families appear to broken into small nuclear units made of a pair of adults and a small number of children.
  • Knowledge is prized among the Quvari among all else, blending science and technology with an almost religious reverence, though there appears not to be any significant religious organizations among the population. New knowledge, no matter how mundane, is treasured. This includes research into forbidden robotic experimentation and artificial intelligence.
  • Quvari tend to be calm and diplomatic at all times. While emotions aren’t repressed, excessive outbursts are often frowned on. Analytical traits are prized over passion. They are highly private and place great emphasis on being polite.
  • The majority of remaining Resistance fighters are Quvari.
  • Quvari seem to find ankles to be aesthetically pleasing and the wealthiest among them are often carried so they never put weight on their feet.
