Larimar is one of my favorite Gemstones, the blue color is stunning, like the Caribbean ocean! Each stone is unique, the natural inclusions and variations in color are gorgeous!
Larimar is very special, it can only be found in one place in the world, in the Dominican Republic.
I am always searching for beautiful, high quality Larimar stones, especially vintage and pre owned stones because I love the idea of them being found on the beach, where they were often found years ago.
People used to believe the stones came from the Sea, hence the name Dolphin Stone, it could be found on the beach or on the land. It is believed to be forced up out of the earth by volcanic eruptions and then it has flowed downstream from rivers into the ocean.
Larimar is becoming rarer and more difficult to find, it used to be found on the surface of the earth, but now they must dig deep into the earth to mine it. No one know how much more is left so we should enjoy their beauty and respect these precious stone while we can still find them.
Larimar has many names, it is also called “Stefilia's Stone”, “ Dolphin Stone”, the Atlantis stone. One of the early artisans working with Larimar “Miguel Mendez” named it after is daughter “Larissa” and he combined it with the Spanish word for ocean “Mar”.
Larimar is a rare, blue Silicate mineral Pectolite, a Fibrous Pectolite. The color can rage from pale blue, deep blue to green blue, it can be Opaque to translucent. Larimar is a delicate stone made of Sodium Calcium Silicate, Manganese and sometime Quartz and Hematite around the outside or in inclusions. Larimar is rated from 4 to 7 on Mohs hardness scale, so you must be careful to protect it from scratches.
