The stone is set into sterling silver, It is surrounded by faux blue topaz that are bezel set. It looks like a stylized flower! Sterling dots add more detail. Terrific unique setting. Beautiful!

I lightly polish my vintage silver as some people like the aged patina. If you want me to polish it before shipping, just let me know! I am not an expert on vintage jewelry, but I do buy and sell what I love! Since these items are vintage, they may have a wonderful aged patina and are not meant or expected to look brand new. I treasure their imperfections as part of their charm and history.
History: The Larimar stone, which is also known as the dolphin stone and atlantis stone is only found on the island of Hispaniola, in the Caribbean Sea. Larimar was discovered in 1916 by a Spanish priest but no mining was done. In 1974 the American Peace Corps Volunteers rediscovered the stone on the beaches of Barahona. Geologists determined that larimar is a rare form of blue pectolite. The quantity at the mine is unknown, which makes the future supply uncertain.
Metaphysical: Some believe that larimar has healing powers which include:
It awakens feminine power and soothes the emotions
It balances water and fire energy as it was created by volcanic activity
Throat chakra stone, assists in expression of emotions
Teaches love, nurturing, respect respect, love
Cleanses emotional blocks, releases attachments
