The gemstone Larimar is a dreamy shade of blue and is often referred to by the different names, below:
“Dolphin Gem”, after the charming and intelligent dolphin.
“Atlantis Gem”, as it is believed by some that the Dominican Republic now stands where the legendary Atlantis once stood.
“Caribbean Stone”, for its resemblance to the ocean waves on the beaches of the Dominican Republic.
Larimar was reportedly discovered in 1916 by Father Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren, but wasn’t mined until decades later in 1974 when Dominican Miguel Méndez and Peace Corps volunteer Norman Rilling noticed a piece of larimar on the Barahonas province shoreline. Named for Miguel’s daughter, Larissa, and “mar,” the Spanish word for “sea,” larimar captures the exquisite beauty of the Caribbean Sea.
