History of Larimar
It is likely that the Taino Indians who inhabited the Island for a thousand years before
Columbus arrived knew of Larimar, but it was not until 1916 that the first official
records existed. A Spanish missionary was in the area looking for gold and other
precious resources that could be exploited and there are records of him requesting
permission from the Dominican Government to explore the area. However, it is unclear
what he knew and when he was sent back to Spain. There is no more mention of the stone
until the 1950s.
How was Larimar discovered?
In 1957, the inhabitants of a small fishing village were finding fragments of a blue
gemstone, we now know as larimar, washing up on the local beach. It was believed that
the larimar stones came from the sea and it took another 20 years for anyone to be
interested enough to investigate this further.
As people became aware of the beauty of Larimar and started using it, the villagers set
out to find the origins and followed the river upstream for a few days. They tried
several tributaries until they eventually found small outcroppings of the blue rock
which we now know is the only known Larimar Deposit in the world.
In 1974, samples of larimar were sent by a Peace Corp volunteer to several geologists,
including the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. It was only after their analysis
that Larimar was found to be a previously unknown member of the Pectolite family.
Where does the name Larimar come from?
Miguel Mendez was one of the early artisans using larimar and he named the beautiful
material larimar after his daughter, “LARISSA”, and the Spanish word for sea, “MAR”.
There are other names which have been applied to Larimar, for example “the Atlantis
stone” and “the dolphin stone”, both of which are
intriguing and both represent different characteristics of this unique gemstone which we
will go into later.
Where is Larimar found?
Larimar deposits have been found in only one place in the world. A remote mountain range
on the island of Hispaniola. The total surface area of the Larimar deposits is thought
to cover less than a single square mile.
It is unknown why Larimar only formed in this one location, but the mountain range was
formed by tectonic plates pushing against one another, so the region was very
volcanically active and it was most likely a unique volcanic event that led to the
formation of Larimar.
How was Larimar formed?
It is thought that larimar was formed by super hot mineral rich fluid being forced into
cracks and fissures formed by tectonic activity. As the fluid in these cavities cooled,
small crystalline nuclides called spherulites formed. As the fluid continued to cool the
spherulites mixed and eventually coalesced into a gel which eventually hardened into
Studies have shown that fine elongated needles indicate that rapid cooling occurred.
However, the larger grains in the white areas indicate that more fluid entered the void
and cooled at a slower rate. The broken and bent needles at the interphase also provide
evidence that the two different areas cooled at slightly different rates.
Today those cracks and fissures form the prized larimar veins that the miners spend years
searching for. When a vein is found, the host rock must be cut open to reveal what is
inside. It is very common to open a larimar rock and only find low grade white or green
material inside. Less than 1% of Larimar is used in
What is Larimar
Pectolite is the common name for Sodium Calcium Silicate Hydroxide (NaCA2Si3O8(OH)).
Pectolite occurs in many places around the world as a whitish gray transparent mineral.
Blue pectolite from the Domincan Republic and is unique because of its color and rarity
and also because it is found in cavities of serpentinized ultramafic rocks (a special
rock that does not fit into the three common categories of rock).
There are various elements which influence the properties of Larimar, such as Copper,
Vanadium, Hematite, Phosphorus and Silica. The exact process that formed larimar is
unknown, but it is obviously due to the unique composition of these minerals in the
Electron microprobe analysis indicates that the different colored portions of larimar
have a relatively uniform composition. This indicates that it is not the chemistry of
Larimar that results in the color, but possibly other factors.
Copper is often thought to be responsible for the color, as it is in Azurite and
Turquoise. Interestingly though, the Copper concentrations have been found to be lower
in the blue spherulites than the paler white areas. Copper occurs in Larimar in solid
flecks which can occur microscopically or in much larger visible amounts. There are some
unusual samples of Larimar that have pure copper veins permeating the stone. Generally,
it is thought that the concentration of copper is not high enough to be responsible for
the color in Larimar.
There have been studies which have shown increased concentrations of Vanadium in the blue
spherulites, but again, the variations are not completely consistent with color, this
indicates that there are other factors affecting the color of the Larimar gemstone.
How is Larimar mined?
Larimar mining is considered “artisan mining”, meaning that it is small scale and
informal, carried out by individuals or small groups using minimal machinery and
equipment. It is a major driver of community development, by providing jobs and ensuring
profits for local villagers in the surrounding region.
Alternative employment in the area is limited to low paying sectors such as agriculture
and fishing. In contrast to industrial scale mining, the miners earnings are spent
locally, supporting sustainable economic growth within their own community.
Forty years ago the deposit of larimar was on the surface, but over time that material
has been mined out requiring the shafts to go deeper and deeper. The best quality
larimar is often found in a layer between two different types of rocks, so the miners
dig vertical shafts down until they hit this boundary layer and then start tunneling
around looking for the veins of Larimar.
A vein of larimar can be as small as a couple of inches up to around twenty inches wide.
The lengths vary from a few inches to several feet long. Several small larimar veins are
usually located in the same area, so once a vein is located, they follow it until it
runs out, which means that the tunnels twist and turn in every direction.
Machinery and dynamite have a tendency to damage the larimar stone and make it unusable,
yet the ground consists of hard igneous rock so the only solution is to dig manually
with pickaxes and small tools to aid in breaking up the stone.
Currently the deepest larimar mines are several hundred feet deep and take about 2 years
to excavate. It is not uncommon for miners to spend several years digging without
finding a single piece of larimar.
Will Larimar run out?
Due to the very small deposits of larimar and the limited financial value of the larimar
deposit extensive geological surveys of the land have never been done. The available
quantity of larimar is unknown, but what is known is that the surface area has been
mined out, so now the shafts are chasing the larimar deposit deep into the mountain.

What color is Larimar
Larimar comes in a wide variety of colors ranging from gentle greens to the deepest blue.
The patterns created during the cooling process give larimar its unique appearance, with
so much variation that no two pieces are alike.
Why is Larimar blue
The mechanisms that give gemstones their colors are generally poorly understood. When
light strikes an object there are two separate processes which affect what we see,
absorption and scattering.
To better explain color mechanisms let us think of glacial ice. If the ice is thick, red
wavelengths of light are absorbed, and the shorter blue wavelengths are transmitted (the
ice appears blue). If the ice is thin, all wavelengths are transmitted, thus it appears
colorless, and these are examples of absorption. If the ice contains many air pockets
(as snow does) the light can not penetrate and is reflected (appearing white), this
scattering is known as the Rayleigh effect.
The sky is blue because particles in the atmosphere scatter the sun's rays in the visible
spectrum. The variation in color from zenith to horizon is due to varying concentrations
of particles in the atmosphere. It is possible that differences in the color of Larimar
are the result of particles within the stone scattering different wavelengths of
Does Larimar come in different colors
Larimar is found in various shades of white, blue and green, with blue being the most
desirable. There is a lot of variation in the intensity of color and it is very common
to have small areas of deep blue color surrounded by pale white or green area's.
It is fairly common to see hematite dendrites around the edges of some rocks and they are
sometimes reffered to as "red larimar". While these pieces are very interesting and
unusual, they are usually not used in the higher grades of jewelry quality stone. You
will also sometimes see "black larimar" this is not gem quality material and is thought
to be carbonized organic matter. It is soft and has no use so is usually thrown into the
tailings along with the host rockand dirt.
Can Larimar change color?
While some gemstones such as Alexandrite show a distinct or dramatic shift in color under
different light sources, color changes do not occur in Larimar. Occasionally you will
see an effect called Chatoyance, the cats eye effect, but it is usually only in the
white crystalline area's of the stone that are rarely used in jewelry. Generally
speaking, the smaller you cut Larimar, the lighter the stones become, so smaller
gemstones, like ones in the Cheyenne bracelet, are not usually as intense
as the pieces with larger pieces of Larimar, like the Brie Bracelet.
Does Larimar fade?
Larimar is a completely untreated gemstone and most dealers do not sell stones that have
been treated, but on occasion, there have been known cases of larimar being soaked in a
copper sulfate solution to make the stone temporarily appear darker. The color in those
pieces is short lived and only lasts a few weeks. There are several articles online that
mention larimar fading and while ultraviolet rays in sunlight will break down chemical
bonds and cause the color of any object to fade, we have never encountered any problems.
Our assumption is that any object left in strong natural sunlight for any period of time
will fade, but for normal day to day wear, this does not seem to be an issue.
Is Larimar Hard
The hardness of larimar is from 4 to 7 on Mohs scale, depending on the crystalline
structure of the stone. Generally the more intense blue and green specimens of larimar
are the hardest, as they have the finest and densest needle structure. Larimar has been
shown to be wearable everyday, with simple gemstone bracelets, that have stood the
test of everyday wear.
How to grade Larimar
Once the raw larimar stones have been mined it is very difficult to differentiate the
various qualities larimar. From the outside a stone may appear to be of good quality,
only to be cut open and expose an interior of worthless host rock. so the first step of
grading is to always cut open the rocks and see what is inside.
There are several factors which affect the grade of larimar, such as color, patterning,
luster, luminosity and inclusions. Generally the bluer tones are the most desirable, but
because every piece of larimar will contain slightly different hues, color saturations,
and markings it is necessary to assess a combination of several factors. Generally
speaking, the smaller the stone is cut, the lighter the color becomes, so the larger pieces usually have deeper color and
more clear patterns.
Due to the general lack of public knowledge about larimar and no standardised grading
scale, it is easy for people to be taken advantage of. Our advice is to ignore the
terminology and nomenclature when purchasing larimar and choose a piece that appeals to
you. A salesperson telling you that a specific piece is "AAA" quality and worth a much
higher price is potentially not as important as your own personal preferences of color,
shade and patterning.
Some people prefer a lighter blue color with no markings, others desire the contrast that
comes with a strong white pattern against a blue larimar stone. Some people dont mind
imperfections and celebrate the natural characteristics of each unique piece. Other
people are looking for a perfectly uniform piece and do not want any hint of a pattern
that is sometimes mistaken as being cracked. A general rule regarding cracks is to run
your fingernail across it. Any kind of crack will easily be felt, if it is smooth, then
it is most likely natural patterning.
Is Larimar treated?
Authentic larimar is a completely untreated gemstone. In order to prepare larimar for
jewelry, the gemstone is simply cut and ground to shape. Once the larimar is set, a
final polish will be applied to bring out the shine and beauty of the natural stone. Learn more
about buying Larimar jewelry here.
Due to its rarity, Larimar is no stranger to fakes bearing its name. However, there are a
few things to keep in mind when recognizing fake from real stones. The first and most
obvious way to recognize a real stone from plastic or resin is heat: a stone will always
be cool to the touch. Plastic will take the temperature of the environment they are in.
A common test to recognize plastic from stone is to put a needle by a flame, then press
it on the stone. If it is resin, it will melt against the needle. Fire and heat will
have no effect on stone. This is commonly called the "Lighter test".Plastic Larimar is
also pretty easy to spot in a side by side comparison. Plastic Larimar will tend to have
a uniform color and display consistent and repeating patterns.
Fake Larimar can also be made from synthetic materials or common stones that are stained
or dyed to resemble Larimar, but look out for these few key things that will differ from
real natural Larimar:
- Larimar is originally formed from hot mineral rich fluid being forced into cracks and
fissures formed by tectonic activity; the liquid form makes the pattern of the Larimar
gemstone very specific called spherulite, spherical body generally occurring in glassy
rocks such as Larimar ; these patterns are very different from stones like Agate or
Chalcedony, which have patterns resembling bands of color all throughout. Glass, which
has no pattern, is also not close to natural Larimar and can easily be recognized as
- “Larimar Quartz” is a label given to stones that aren’t Larimar but more or less
resemble it. Larimar isn’t a quartz, so if you see this name, you already know not to
expect natural Larimar gemstone! Larimar is a pectolite, unlike quartz, which is a very
common white or colorless mineral that tend to be dyed to resemble other gemstones.
- Larimar substitutes are usually dyed Howlite, Quartz or Amazonite. Dyed stones are
usually lack the natural color variation of real Larimar. They lean toward the green end
of the spectrum and have a slightly translucent look with a consistent color. They can
also have highly concentrated spots of color where the dye has absorbed into cracks and
voids in the stone.
There are many articles written online about genuine Larimar not being translucent. This
is not however a reliable test. It is unusual to see translucent Larimar, but there are
occasionally pieces with a very dense crystalline structure that are somewhat
translucent when held up to the light. Keep in mind that the thinner the cut of the
stone, the more likely it is to be translucent to light and pale in nature. This isn’t a
characteristic proper to Larimar, and is a rule that will apply to all gemstones on the
spectrum. For deeper, more vibrant color, pick jewelry that have dome or cushion-shaped
gemstones and have larger cuts of stones. The smaller the stone, the lighter and more
transparent the color will be.
What gemstones come from the Caribbean?
Very few gemstones originate from the Caribbean islands, but larimar is by far the most
popular. It is often referred to as the Gemstone of the Caribbean because the blues and
whites mimic the sky and sea of the Caribbean where it is found. Other gemstones,
besides larimar, that come from the Caribbean are Caymanite and Amber. There is also a
rare type of blue Amber also found in the Dominican Republic.
What is so special about Larimar?
While many people think we have found, studied and classified most animal, plants and
minerals in the world, every now and then something new is discovered and larimar is one
of these surprises. Larimar was first mined less than 50 years ago and is only found in
one location on earth, a remote mountain region in the Dominican Republic. People are
drawn, not only to the beautiful color, but also what it represents. Marahlago’s sealife
pieces remain some of the more popular styles – evidence that this
special gemstone ties in the earth, sky and sea.
Is Larimar Rare
Larimar Deposits have been found in only one place in the world: a remote mountain range
on the Island of Hispaniola. The surface area of the larimar deposits are thought to
cover less than a single square mile. There are single source stones on every continent
and one of the most well known is Tanzanite, which is mined in the foothills of mount
Kilimanjaro and covers an area of approximately 8 square kilometers.
Will Larimar increase in value?
One of the most beautiful and rare gemstones on the planet, larimar has only ever been
found in one, very small area in the mountains of the Dominican Republic. Over the last
decade larimar has become one of the most sought after semi-precious gemstones in the
Forty years ago, Larimar was found on the surface. Twenty years ago it was mined in
shallow pits 20 to 30’ deep. Now the mine shafts have to go more than 600 feet
underground! As the larimar mines continue to chase the deposit ever deeper, the
difficulty and cost to extract the stone will naturally increase. So it seems safe to
say, that unless a new deposit is found, larimar is most likely to increase in
Is Larimar expensive?
As larimar becomes more known and as companies like marahlago, continue to push the
boundaries of what can be achieved, it is sure to increase in value. For instance, the
Alexandria necklace takes 3-4 months and several
kilo's of larimar to make a single necklace. A piece of high quality jewelry such as
that has an incrementally different value than a simpler piece created with more
Every hundred feet farther into the ground the miners have to dig makes larimar that much
more difficult and costly to bring to the customer. There have been several price
increases over the years, and it is realistic to think that the farther down the miners
have to dig, the more expensive the stone will become.
Is Larimar the new Turquoise?
Turquoise is a semi-precious opaque, blue-to-green mineral with dark veins of various
elements, that can be anything from quartz to metallic pyrite to sandstone. The
Turquoise matrix is the term that describes the patterns of the Turquoise gemstone that
is so popular and adored. In recent times, the Smithsonian suggested Larimar is becoming
almost more valuable than diamonds.
The current main deposits of Turquoise are located in China, the United States, Mexico,
and Tibet. The oldest deposit that was reported is at least 2000 years and comes from
Iran. Today, many southwest American mines have run dry and are now closed.
Government restrictions as well as the high costs of mining have also impacted the
ability to find jewelry-quality Turquoise ; because of it, most of today’s Turquoise is
recovered as a byproduct of copper mining. This resulted in quality turquoise becoming
increasingly harder to find.
Just as the Southwest American Turquoise mines were being depleted and no longer
operating, a beautiful new gemstone was being discovered in the middle of the Caribbean
with a bright blue color reminiscent of cloudy skies and Caribbean oceans, featuring
mesmerizing lightning patterns running throughout the stone.
Unlike Gold, Diamond, Turquoise, Amber, and several other gemstones, which have been used
in jewelry for thousands of years, Larimar doesn’t have a long history, with its
earliest records dating back to 1916.
Because Larimar is a lovely blue color, some people confuse it with varieties of
Turquoise. However, Larimar is considered one of the rarest minerals on planet Earth and
this is because its ONLY known source is in one remote mountain located in Bahoruco,
Looking at the color of the Larimar stone more closely, it displays a pastel ocean-like
blue with some white specks, whereas Turquoise shows a more vivid and saturated
Both Larimar and Turquoise have some pretty distinct patterns. Turquoise contains dark or
brown veins and can have brown and grey spots throughout the stone, whereas Larimar has
a smooth light blue surface decorated with a web of white lines/spots.
What is Larimar used for?
Because of the high cost, Larimar is most often used in jewelry,
but it can also be used to make beads and decorative objects.
How do you clean Larimar?
Larimar can be cleaned with water and a silver polishing cloth, or diluted mild dish soap
and warm water. Do not put larimar in an ultrasonic cleaning machine as this might strip
off the polish.
If your silver is tarnished, Marahlago Larimar has a tutorial on how to clean your
Larimar jewelry at How to
clean your Larimar jewelry using everyday household products. The process will
not damage larimar, pearls or other accent stones and is gentle enough not to harm the
surface of the larimar or the oxidized finish of more elaborate styles.
Is Larimar a Healing Stone?
Larimar is highly sought after within the metaphysical community, as Larimar is believed
to be a healing stone. Healers that use gemstones in their work were amongst the first
people to recognize the true rarity and value of larimar and much has been written about
the metaphysical properties.

associated with Atlantis, and many psychics have since confirmed this connection (hence
the name Atlantis stone).
Larimar combines the energy of the oceans with the energy of the heavens which means
Larimar helps to combine our thoughts (air) with our emotions (water).
When placed on the skin, the high vibrational energy of Larimar can help to ease stress
and tension and it is said to be excellent for clearing headaches. Local folklore also
says that Larimar has the ability to attract one's soulmate!
Does Larimar bring good luck?
According to the Book of Stones by Robert Simmons, placing Larimar on your work desk can
promote a relaxed and serene atmosphere. Carry larimar around for good luck and wear
larimar around your neck to promote clearer communication. Even those who don’t believe
in the healing powers of stones often carry their larimar around as a good luck
Larimar is best known to be a healing stone, but its metaphysical powers go much deeper.
