- Larimar is a unique variety of pectolite, which is a stone with an unusual fibrous formation.

- While pectolite was first described in Italy in 1828, the unique bright blue variety of larimar is found only in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean, and was only discovered in 1916, and only given its name in 1974.

- It forms in cavities within lava created by volcanic eruptions, and its shape is formed of unique needle-like crystals.
Sometimes, it contains reddish or brown spots, caused by oxidation of iron within the matrix of the crystal.

- The blue colour comes from calcium deposits, but copper pectolite is quite similar, and produces a paler translucent turquoise colour that may be streaked with white.
The most valuable larimar stones are intense, bright shades of blue, and very rare and expensive.
These stones are photosensitive, and will fade if frequently exposed to light, which only increases their value.

- If you are lucky enough to own a larimar stone with a high contrast, then you must ensure that you are keeping it safe and out of direct light whenever possible.
