This cut and polished oval Larimar cabochon is set in a .925 sterling silver bezeled pendant on a 20-inch sterling silver popcorn chain.
The color of Larimar is caused by copper inclusions. Its color is rarely solid; it is almost always blue with interconnecting white lines and rough circles. The blue color can vary in intensity from very light to greenish-blue to deep sky blue. Deeper blue colors and less white are more desirable.
Very unique, Larimar only comes from one place in the world. It is found in a limited deposit in the Dominican Republic, and is virtually the only gemstone to be found in the entire Caribbean. Its lovely sea-blue color is very reminiscent of the Caribbean seas.
