These gorgeous Larimar cabochons are ready to made into beautiful pieces of jewelry! Larimar is a truly rare gemstone of volcanic origins. It is only found one place in the world, the Dominican Republic. Larimar was discovered in the 1970's by a local resident that stumbled upon a cave with Larimar lining the walls. He named the newly found gem after his daughter Larissa and the sea ("mar" in Spanish). Larimar is also known as the Dolphin Stone, Blue Pectolite, Atlantis Stone, and Stefilia's Stone. It has been said that the blue variety of the stone has been completely mined out (as it was only found on one square kilometer of the island). Instead, they are finding the green variety of Larimar that is too soft to set in jewelry.
