Larimar is also known as Dolphin Stone, Atlantis Stone or Blue Pectolite. Larimar is a rare form of Pectolite only found in the Caribbean. It occurs as needle-like crystals, grown together in a solid mass and forms in cavities within basaltic lava. The copper substitution in the stone produces the soft blues. Besides the white mineral streaks, you may also find red and brown areas of oxidation or Hematite inclusions. The more intense the blue, the higher value of the Larimar. Please note that natural Larimar is photosensitive and may fade over time in high light or heat, so keep your stones protected when not in use.
We now have a few pieces of beautiful blue Larimar available at the I Dig Crystals shop.
