Larimar Silver Ring
Larimar, also known as Atlantis Stone, and Dolphin Stone, is an extremely rare sodium calcium silicate and a member of the Pectolite family. Pectolite can be found all around the world, but only in shades of grey and white.
The soft blue colour of Larimar is due to the substitution of copper, instead of calcium. This special mineral was able to form in cavities of basalt rock during heavy volcanic activity. As lava was flowing, this steady stream began to pick up any and all minerals in its path and displace them. As the lava moved over cavities and dikes, minerals began to fall in and create the beautiful stone we now call Larimar. This unique mineral only has one locality and can only be found within a half square mile in the Dominican Republic
