Larimar is a rare semi-precious gem found in the Dominican Republic. It’s colour ranges from white, to light blue, to green-blue, to deep blue, mirroring the beautiful oceanic scenery of the Caribbean from which it comes.
Norman Rilling, a member of the Peace Corps and Miguel Méndez found pieces of Larimar on the seashore in 1974. The word was created by Méndez, who combined his daughter's name Larissa with the the Spanish word for sea, Mar.
