Larimar is a rare variety of Pectolite, the delicate shades blue  being attributed to traces of copper. This type  of Pectolite is only found in The Dominican Republic. It was formed as super heated gases brought minerals from deep within the Earth to cool in volcanic pipes. Larimar gemstones exhibit swirls of differing pale blue hues with delicate striations or lines as one hue merges into another . 

It was named by one of the discoverers after his daughter Larissa and the Spanish word for sea `mar`, hence Larimar.

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