 Larimar, a precious gemstone, was first found by locals on a Dominican Republic beach. Legend has it that an earthquake in 1974 led to the discovery of this rare blue stone.

  • Larimar is formed in volcanic rocks when hot fluids carrying silica, calcium, and other minerals fill cavities within the rock.

  • Miguel Mendez named the stone Larimar after his daughter Larissa and the Spanish word "mar," meaning "sea," to give it significance.

  • Credit for Larimar's rediscovery is also given to Peace Corps volunteer Norman Rilling and Miguel Mendez. They stumbled upon a striking blue rock in Barahona during their exploration.

  • Larimar, also known as "Stefilia's Stone," "Atlantis Stone," and "Dolphin Stone," exhibits varying shades of blue, from volcanic blue to light blue, accented with sterling silver.

  • The chemical formula of Larimar, NaCa2Si3O8(OH), belongs to the pectolite group of minerals, known for their high copper content and hydroxyl groups.

  • Larimar's distinctive sky-blue hue is a result of copper ions replacing calcium ions in the crystal structure, creating its unique color.
