Also called "Stefilia's Stone", is a rare blue variety of pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean. Its coloration varies from white, light-blue, green-blue to deep blue.
Larimar jewelry is offered in the in the Caribbean as a local specialty. Most jewelry produced is set in silver. Quality grading is according to coloration and the typical mineral crystal configuration in the stone. Larimar also comes in green and even with red spots, brown strikes etc. due to other matters and / or oxidation. But the more intense the blue and the contrasts in the stone, the higher and rarer is the quality. The blue color is photosensitive and fades with time if exposed to too much light and heat.
This unique treasure unknown to the world at large is buried deep in the high and isolated mountains of the southwest region of the Dominican Republic; where the tropical climate and exuberant vegetation create one of the loveliest landscapes on the island of Hispaniola. It is Found within an explosion of gigantic trees, amid arbors of mangos, plantains, papaya, and serenaded by symphonies of orquids and hibiscus. This “treasure” is exemplified by the beautiful blue pectolite known as Larimar, which is found only in one small and highly restricted area of the Dominican Republic; this stone has not been found anywhere else in the world. In recent years this gem has come to be regarded as one of the rarest novelties known. The extents of the deposits have not yet been fully determinate. For this reason, the supply could become exhausted at any time. So hurry up and take personal piece of the treasure.
But that fact is the least of it, because the immeasurable value of its intrinsic beauty transcends the material value of its composition. These newly discovered treasures draw us toward a unique understanding. Each fragment that is unearthed from the spots where the miners remove it with their hard manual labor represents a moment in the geological history of the region. They speak to us of our beginnings; of when –around 100 million years ago – the island of Hispaniola was merely a lengthening sliver of solidifying rock emerging from the ocean floor, comprising basic volcanic debris, and disgorging at the extreme western corner of what is today the bahoruco range shows us the colors and properties of this gem with its origins in the enchanting Caribbean sea, amid scenes of breathtaking beauty.
Larimar guards within itself the essence of air and water. The water, linked with the heart’s emotions, and the air that governs the mind’s sensibility. Larimar represents the perfect synthesis between thought and feeling. In the tranquility of its lustrous blue, it creates a link of peace between the heart and the mind. Negative thoughts produce turbulent sentiments.
Similarly, unbalanced emotions can obscure the mind’s perception. But larimar is like a tranquilizer helping us to neutralize and dissolve the inner phantoms of conflict. We’re all travelers through the eternal dimensions of time and space, leading an existence of complete harmony with nature
