Larimar is a trademarked name for a rare blue, gem-quality variety of the mineral pectolite. Pectolite is normally gray in color and is actually not that rare, occurring in many locations around the world. But blue Larimar is found only in one location in the entire world - the Dominican Republic. Gemologically, blue Larimar is a hydrated sodium calcium silicate with manganese. Its color can vary from white to light-blue, and from medium sky to volcanic blue.

The history of Larimar is based on many legends and stories. Although Larimar is commercially a relatively new gemstone, Dominican ancestors have long-prized the Caribbean gem. Stories of its first discovery claim that it was found by Father Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren in 1916 in the Dominican Republic.

When polished, it exhibits an attractive silky luster. Due to its distinct pattern and colors, there are really no other gemstones commonly mistaken for rare blue Larimar.

Natural gemstones can vary in thickness. If you need to know the vertical dimension of a specific gemstone, please contact customer service.
