What is Larimar?

There is so much more to know about Larimar than just that it is one of the most beautiful gemstones in the world.

First of all – it’s one of the most rare, too! LARIMAR is found in only one place in the world - one square kilometer (approximately ½ square mile!) in the mountains above Baoruco in the Dominican Republic!

LARIMAR is a volcanic stone, the result of volcanic activity that occurred millions of years ago! It’s a form of pectolite, and although pectolite is found in nearly every hemisphere, none have the unique volcanic blue coloration of Larimar. Pectolite is normally gray or white, yet pectolite from that one location in the world is a beautiful blue pectolite – that which we know and love as Larimar!

The unique color and patterns within larimar are the result of mixing and cooling that occurred as the stone formed. As a result of the unique minerals and cooling process during crystalization each piece has unique color and patterning.
