History: Larimar is an extremely rare gemstone that has been found in only one location: in a mountainous, relatively inaccessible region of the Dominican Republic overlooking the Caribbean Sea. This gemstone first surfaced in 1974, although the inhabitants of the region and their ancestors have long been aware of the stone. Legend has it that they used to simply collect these stones on the beach, but one day they couldn’t find anymore. They went to explore upstream, and came upon a rock formation that seemed to be the source of this blue precious stone. The name Larimar was given to the stone by a Dominican, Miguel Mendez, who combined his daughter’s name LARIssa, with MAR, the Spanish word for sea. The stone is also called the Atlantis Stone, since a wise prophet once claimed that the Dominican Republic was part of the lost continent of Atlantis, an association that has been affirmed by various spiritual and metaphysical authorities.
