  • Brief Information:

    Larimar is known by three names, The Dolphin Stone, Caribbean Gemstone, and Atlantis Stone (as it is believed by the locals that Atlantis once stood where the mine is today).

    Larimar was reportedly discovered in 1916 by Father Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren, but wasn't mined until decades later in 1974 when Dominican Miguel Méndez and Peace Corps volunteer Norman Rilling noticed a piece of larimar on the Barahonas province shoreline. Named for Miguel's daughter, Larissa, and "mar," the Spanish word for "sea," larimar captures the exquisite beauty of the Caribbean Sea.
