What is Larimar Jewelry?

Larimar is an indigenous gemstone located in the southwestern portion of the Dominican Republic, in the island of Hispaniola, located in the Caribbean. This rare sky blue pectolite has amassed widespread world popularity since its re-discovering in 1974.

Larimar comes for the combination of two words. The first part “Lari” comes from the daughter’s name of the man that re-discovered the stone in Barahona, and the second part “mar”, which means “sea” in Spanish. Its coloration varies from white, light-blue, green-blue to deep blue.
Larimar is set mainly on Silver to make our beautiful Melymar jewelry.
