Generally we carry larimar in a variety of sizes. At times, availability can be quite limited as it only arrives with specific shipments.
Larimar, a form of pectolite, was discovered in the Dominican Republic in 1974 by Mr. Mendez, a peace corp worker. It was named after his daughter, Larisa, and mar, the Spanish word for sea. Larimar is quite a rare form of pectolite. Often mistaken for translucent turquoise or fine blue jade, larimar mirrors the beautiful waters that surround itÕs island of origin.
