These authentic larimar beads are unbelievably gorgeous. Larimar seems to be the stone that everyone wants that no one can find. It is extremely limited in supply and in very high demand, which makes it a more expensive stone. Looking into larimar beads is like looking into the Caribbean Sea, it feels like you could fall right in. For a less expensive option that is similar in color, check out our Larimar Blue Crazy Lace Agate beads. They're not quite as beautiful as the authentic larimar beads below, but they're much less expensive :)
Larimar is found exclusively in The Dominican Republic. Larimar is a variety of pectolite. Although pectolite is abundant, none has the volcanic blue coloration of larimar. Pectolite is an acid cylicate hydrate of calcium and sodium, but in the case of larimar, cobalt has taken the place of calcium -- this produces the gorgeous blue color.
