What's so special about Larimar?
For one thing, it only comes from one country in the world - Larimar is a rare blue variety of Pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic, which is located in the Caribbean. It’s also the only gemstone to be found in the entire Caribbean.
Sometimes called "The Dolphin Stone", this unique blue gemstone only exists in one location on that tiny island - the southwest corner in the mountains of Baharona at the Filipinas Mine in Los Checheses. Larimar is a form of Pectolite which isn’t a rare mineral itself, but no other variety has the unique and lovely sea-blue coloration of Larimar, reminiscent of the beautiful ocean surrounding the island.
The color of Larimar is rarely solid but a sea-blue with white lines and rough circles. On occasion, it can also exhibit crystal needle-like patterns. The beautiful blue color of Larimar can vary in intensity from very light to greenish-blue to deep sky blue.
Larimar was discovered only recently - initially in 1916 and then its locality was apparently forgotten - until 1974 when Miguel Méndez, a Dominican native, and Norman Rilling, a visiting member of the US Peace Corps, found the locality again. Together they named this new stone "Larimar", which is a combination of "Larrisa" (Méndez's daughter's name) and "mar" (sea in Spanish). Due to its rarity and limited source, Larimar is difficult to obtain outside of the Caribbean.
Larimar is a soft gemstone and easily scratched so care should be taken when handling it. It can also fade if exposed to strong sunlight for long periods of time.
