Larimar is a turquoise colored stone found only in the Dominican Republic. Father Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren discovered it in 1916. It was rediscovered in 1974 by Miguel Mendez and Norman Rilling on a beach. Mendez named it Larimar. “Lari” was taken from Larissa, the daughter of Mendez, and “mar” for the sea. 
A necklace featuring the Larimar pendant pictured above can be found on the Metal Jewelry Shaper web site.
