Larimar is a mineral with unique sky-blue coloration caused by copper. In this form, it comes from only one source in the Dominican Republic, which is mined by primitive methods and anticipated to play out at some (unknown) point. It is rare and popular, with imitation materials competing with the natural in the marketplace. A much darker blue than the material in this piece exists, and deeper color is more valuable. But this lighter turquoise hue is still sought after. The fascinating white webbing suggests sea foam or clouds in the sky.
Colors sometimes appear differently on different computer monitors.
