Larimar from the Dominican RepublicHere's a nice piece of larimar, the gem variety of pectolite, with one face polished. This specimen displays the desirable cloud-like pattern and pretty greenish blue coloration. The red areas present are a little brighter in the pictures than they actually are to the eye. Good quality larimar has been typically sold by the gram and can get fairly expensive for even a small piece. While this specimen may not quite be jewelry quality, it is still very nice, and far less expensive then solid larimar without matrix.
