Larimar is a rare variety of Pectolite the delicate shades blue being attributed to traces of copper. It was formed as super heated gases brought minerals from deep within the Earth to cool in volcanic pipes. This type of Pectolite is only found in The Dominican Republic. It was named by one of the discoverers after his daughter Larissa and the Spanish word for sea `mar`, hence Larimar.

Legend states that the lost city of Atlantis lies in the region of the Caribbean . It was thought that Larimar was used to decorate the bulidings of Atlantis as it was often found washed up on the beaches . The gemstone pieces were thought to be the remnants of that decoration.

Larimar is believed to ecourage clear thought, aid tranquility and calmness. The birthstone for Aries, Virgo and Gemini
