~ A little history on this beautiful rare blue stone: 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. It's coloration varies from white, light-blue, green-blue to deep blue. Larimar is also know as the Dolphin Stone, Blue Pectolite, Atlantis Stone, and Stefilia's Stone. Originally discovered in 1916, it was named by the Dominican who rediscovered it in 1974, taking the first letters of his daughter's name , Larissa, and the Spanish word for the sea, mar, to create Larimar.
