discovered and relatively a newly welcomed stone in the world of gems and jewels, Larimar has been honored with the title, “The Blue Stone of Atlantis”, due to its amazingly striking blue color. Also called as the stefilia’s stone, Larimar is a rare variety of pectolite, which is only found in the Dominican Republic.
Larimar exhibits in itself the beauty of sparkling blue-water and island, which surrounds its place of origination.
Larimar is often confused with blue jade or translucent turquoise, but Larimar in itself is such an astounding stone that it needs no guide for its recognition.
Larimar was originally discovered in 1916 by a Spanish priest, but no mining took place. Then, in 1974, the volunteers of the American Peace Corps rediscovered the stone on the seashores of Barahona. Larimar derived its name from one of the volunteer’s daughter called “Larissa”, which was combined with the Spanish word for sea called “Mar”.
