Larimar is a variety of pectolite, which was discovered in the 1970's and is only found in the Dominican Republic. It has a blue appearance similar to the color of the ocean in tropical areas. Hardness varies between 5-7 on the Mohs scale with the darker blue form ranging closer to 7.

The name "Larimar" comes from a combination of Larissa and Mar and was given to the stone by a Dominican who named the stone after his daughter Larissa and Mar, the Spanish word for sea.
