Caribbean Larimar

If this year you can't go, then at least you can remind yourself of the Caribbean - and wear it!

For the utterly unromantic, Larimar is a type of pectolite, and pectolite is found all over the world, but only in the Dominican Republic is this volcanic blue found. It is caused by the addition of copper (rather than calcium) at its formation.

Obviously it has been known for centuries by native tribes as it was washed down the Bahoruco river into the turquoise Caribbean waters, but an attempt to mine it by a priest in 1916 was refused, so it was not "discovered" until 1974.

What is amazing - yet again - is how larimar, mined deep underground inland, looks so precisely like the transparent turquoise waters on the Caribbean coast.

How indeed can hard, solid rock look so much like water?
