Stunning larimar pendant mounted in a stylish sterling silver setting. This highly polished stone is a rare mineral that's also known as blue pectolite. Coming exclusively from the Caribbean island of the Dominican Republic, it's extremely rare and almost completely mined out. Due to its rarity only small quantities of larimar are exported nowadays and the vast majority of material remains on the island for the purpose of creating revenue which comes primarily from visiting tourists.
Although there are some very beautiful pieces of larimar jewelry available to buy, they're certainly not readily available and most stones tend to be small and finely cut. This striking larimar gemstone is quite chunky and is also very slightly translucent. This fine grade cabochon was cut exclusively for Stone Mania from a larger piece of rock.
Sadly larimar is becoming rarer by the day and we have not been able to source any material of this grade for some considerable time.
