Larimar was forged from the volcanic forces that shaped the Caribbean. There, it remained undiscovered until small bits of stone tumbled down a river to the sea, being polished along the way. In 1974, a local artisan rediscovered the stone and names it for his daughter (Larissa) and the Spanish word for sea (mar).
Larimar is found on a one square kilometer on a mountaintop in the Dominican Republic. Acquiring this gem is difficult due to Mother Nature and the local terrain. Few people have ever seen Larimar, making it one of nature's best-kept secrets.
Larimar is a hard stone with a color palette of blue and green, with no two stones alike. Each stone is handpicked and celebrates its beauty with settings designed to enhance and compliment its volcanic and oceanic traits.
