COMMENTS: Circa 1980's. Pictured as received from a local estate. The stone is a beautiful Larimar which comes from the Dominican Republic. Larimar can only be found in one location due to the unusual amount of copper in the soil which gives the stone its blue color, the more copper there was the deeper blue color in the stone. It is formed in volcanic tubes when hot gasses push crystallized material up through the tubes. Larimar was discovered in 1916 but didn't become popular until the 1970's. It got its name by the man who discovered it who named it partially after his daughter, Larissa, and Mar which is Spanish for the sea. Cleaning and/or polishing by request at no additional cost.
