Where is Larimar From?
Larimar is found in the Dominican Republic but also can be found in the Bahamas. Our Larimar comes from the Dominican Republic.
It is believed that Larimar was formed by hot mineral-rich fluid being forced into crevices and cracks formed by tectonic activity. As the mineral-rich fluid-cooled within the cavities, small crystalline nuclides called spherulites formed. As the liquid further cooled, the spherulites mixed and eventually merged into a gel which ultimately hardened into Larimar. Its blue colouration, which can range from pale to deep blue, is caused by the presence of copper in the stone.
