Larimar is a rare blue pectolite that forms in cavities and fractures of volcanic rocks. It is found only in the Dominican Republic. It was first discovered in 1916 but did not gain widespread attention until the 1970s when a local artisan rediscovered it.
Larimar is known for its stunning blue color, ranging from pale blue to deep blue-green. The color is believed to be caused by the presence of copper in the mineral. Larimar is also known for its white and gray mottled patterns caused by calcite.
