We have an array of beautiful fine Larimar jewelry to showcase coming up. Here's some background info!
The name larimar has two parts stemming from its origins; Larissa daughter of the missionary who discovered the stone on the island many years ago, and Mar Spanish for the word Sea. Larimar is also known as “the stone of the ocean.” Found in just 1 sq. mile in the remote Dominican rainforest, miners extract the rough material in hopes of finding quality stone that can make it into the jewelry. This makes it one of rarest naturally occurring gemstones in the world.
Here are three things that describe the variation in colors in a good quality piece of this Caribbean Gemstone.
Ocean & Sea Blues – Just like the immense display of color in the Caribbean Sea
Shorebreak Whites – Inspired by the crashing waves as they wash up on shore
Lagoon Greens – There is a hint of green which gives an exotic and tranquil element.
The above three colors are mixed in harmony to achieve its Larimar’s unique appearance. But, the design of each stone is entirely up to mother nature. No one piece is ever the same which makes it one of the few visibly different stones in the world.
Drawing from its roots among paradise some say the stone has calming properties. A piece of Larimar can be worn as a reminder to take it easy and relax. It can be also be an excellent keepsake to remember your time spent by the shore.
