Larimar is a rare variety of blue pectolite, found only in 1 square kilometer of the Dominican Republic. White pectolite is a zeolite mineral found in other locations, but larimar occurs only on the island of Hispaniola, Dominican side. Top grades of larimar have been mined out for several years, and the mines are inaccessible seasonally, so supply can vary greatly. The future of this unique Caribbean blue stone remains to be seen.
