What is Larimar?
Larimar or blue pectolite 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. It wasn’t until 1974 that the stone really made an appearance. The brilliant volcanic blue coloration of Larimar is caused by copper inclusions substituted for calcium at the time of its formation. Its color is rarely solid; but displays interconnected white lines and rough circles. A radiating pattern of crystal needles can often be observed within the Larimar. 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. We personally go to the mine to establish good relationships with the miners and to handpick the best stones directly.
