Larimar is a very rare gemstone found only in one location: a single rainforest mountainside in a relatively inaccessible area in the province of Barahona in the Dominican Republic. The blue color can vary in intensity from very light to greenish-blue to deep sky blue, a perfect visual representation of the beautiful Caribbean ocean and island of Hispañola.
It is common practice for larimar stones with even the slightest imperfections to be discarded. Much like the women in the workshop, we see beauty in imperfection and celebrate each stone exactly as it was made in nature.
Vida Plena is a ministry arm of 2nd Mile Missions whose purpose is to spread the love of Christ by disrupting the cycle of poverty in the communities we serve. We do this by providing children and adults with educational resources, spiritual enrichment, employment and business opportunities. We invite others to observe and participate in this healing process firsthand in the Dominican Republic.
