National Larimar Day – The History & Fun Facts

National Larimar Day occurs every year on November 22 in the Dominican Republic. A festive time of year where the country comes together to celebrate various activities that include craft fairs, talks, and cultural events commemorating Larimar. Majority of the Celebrations happen in Bahoruco Municipal District, La Ciénega Municipality of the province of Barahona, and the Colonial City of Santo Domingo.

Larimar, the blue aqueous gemstone, is the centerpiece and legacy of the Dominican Republic. It has been declared as the “National Stone” since 2011. A special gemstone that only this country can claim and has itself become a sort of identity engrained into the culture.
