Gentle and earthy. This necklace is made of pale blue larimar, which has been wire wrapped to form a chain. The pendant is a hand stamped flower, with a peek a boo center. Measures 18"-19" with lobster clasp and adjustable length chain closure. Sterling silver, which has been oxidized and hand polished for an antique finish.
About Larimar: This stone is known by many ‘names’ : The Atlantis Stone, The Dolphin Stone, Stefilia’s Stone. It is in fact a lovely variety of Pectolite. Found only in the Caribbean blue waters around the Dominican Republic.
Told to have first been discovered in 1916 in the southwest of the Dominican Republic by a Spanish born priest of the name Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren, who it is said to have reported the discovery to the Archbishop, but no mining action was taken at the time. Said then to have been discovered by a Peace Corp. worker in 1974, Mr. Mendez, it was given it’s name for his daughter Lari for ‘Larisa’ and Mar from the Spanish for ‘Sea’.
Larimar is said to represent peace, clarity, healing, and love. Offering one a glimpse of oneself from outside the realm of personal reality, and inspiring one to work towards the actualization of one’s true spiritual reality.
