Larimar is a mineral that is part of the Quartz silicate family. It is extracted from deposits located almost exclusively in the Dominican Republic, in the province of Barahona. Only one other larimar mine exists elsewhere in the world, in Italy in the province of Verona, Veneto. Larimar is a variety of pectolite, blue pectolite. This stone is also known as " Dominican turquoise "(this appellation is now prohibited), due to its blue color, the shades of which change from bluish white to dark blue.
The semi-precious stones of larimar are very rare and very sought after in jewelry. They met with immediate success when they were discovered in the 1970s, by Miguel Mendez. The latter then combined the first name of his daughter, Larissa, to the Sea, " mar "in Spanish, to create the name of the rock "larimar": indeed, the hues of the semi-precious stone of larimar seem to want to merge with those of the waters of the Caribbean Sea...
The larimar was formed in volcanic chimneys and now it is necessary to dig deeper and deeper to extract it from the ground. Because they have been brought into contact with copper, iron, potassium or alum, some semi-precious stones of larimar have red veins, when other specimens take surprising colors, traversed by unique patterns.
