Larimar is known as the Caribbean gemstone and it is easy to see why. The mesmerizing array of colors range from a lighter sky blue with wispy clouds to a deeper oceanic blue with crashing waves. It is unbelievable how Larimar captures the essence of its source in the Caribbean. This natural beauty inspires us to create great designs bringing out the best of this majestic gem. Larimar was recently discovered in the Dominican Republic when fishermen found some white and green colored pebbles on a beach. An earthquake had dislodged some pieces that fell into a river and tumbled downstream until they eventually washed up on the shoreline. Amazingly, it is still possible to walk along the beach and with the help of local children, find some of these treasures.
