What is Larimar? 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. Its coloration varies from white, light-blue, green-blue to deep blue. Other than widely being considered the top of the turquoise stones, it's also believed to have strong healing attributes.
Larimar also makes lovely jewellery pieces since the blue is so unique. Larimar jewelry is offered to the public in the Dominican Republic, and elsewhere in the Caribbean as a local speciality. Most jewelry produced is set in silver, but sometimes high-grade larimar is also set in gold.
For instance check out a shop called Larimar (https://larimar.com) which sells a whole range of beautiful Larimar-crafted jewellery pieces. Some of my favourite pieces from their collection include their earrings and necklaces. The blue colour is simply dazzling - it's sort of light blue with a cloudy interior, giving off a mysterious vibe.
I decided to order a pendant from the Larimar shop since I wanted to see if the real thing was anything like the pictures. I mean- I love blue coloured items and clothing, so I was dying to try out their Larimar Bliss pendants as it would go well with pretty much any outfit. It's on the mid-range in terms of price, but this is because Larimar is a high-grade quality stone. It's not just any cheap stone indeed.
Their jewellery usually comes with a pure sterling silver chain so everything can be worn immediately. There is no need to go out and buy your own chain at an extra cost. Overall, I'm very pleased with my order. I'm definitely wearing this to my next formal dinner party, and I'm sure I'll get lots of compliments!
