Note : The stones are not polished to keep the original rough matte finish that offers more organic natural beauty. Stones are very fresh looking like brand new. And the signature blue mottled with white of Larimar is really unique and feels refreshing !
*** Larimar, also called Stefilia's Stone, is a rare blue variety of the silicate mineral pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean. Its coloration varies from white, light-blue, green-blue to deep blue.
Quality grading is according to coloration and the typical mineral crystal configuration in the stone. Larimar also comes in green and even with red spots, brown streaks, etc., due to the presence of other minerals and/or oxidation. But the more intense the blue color and the contrast in the stone, the higher and rarer is the quality.
