Larimar is a blue form of Pectolite. Larimar refers to the stone discovered in the Domincan Republic, in an ocean blue color, which sometimes exhibits chatoyancy. Also referred to as the "Caribbean Gemstone."
Larimar is the result of volcanic activity, which ocurred many million years ago on the island of la "La Hispanola" in the Dominican Republic. Its crystallization took place when the volcanic lava was cooling off as columns in the tubular "chimneys", in which these pectolites, andesites, basalts and other minerals formed. Larimar is only found in this one small area of the Dominican Republic, and no where else in the world.
