A Bit of History
Known as the Stone of Atlantis or sometimes the Dolphin Stone, Larimar is a fairly recent discovery amongst gemstones. Located only on the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean Sea of the Dominican Republic, Larimar is quickly gaining a reputation for being a healing stone with deep spiritual powers. Larimar may not be as ancient as some other stones, but its spiritual properties have already been well established.
It’s the only pectolite mineral of its kind because of its stunning blue color thanks to copper inclusions. Some Larimar stones have red markings, but the deep blue shade is considered the most valuable. Other kinds of pectolite are soft and fragile and what made Larimar a true gem is that it is tough enough to withstand carving and faceting.
Larimar gems are formed when hot gasses from the volcanoes pushed the crystalized minerals up into the volcanic tubes. It is dug deep down the volcanoes and only miners who are aware of a specific kind of tubes can extract the Larimar. Because of soil erosion, some gems are washed along the river and into the sea, resulting to gemstones that can also be gathered by the sea.
