Larimar Jewelry Pendant

Larimar Jewelry Pendant, Larimar & Sterling Silver

Larimar is a recently discovered ocean-blue gemstone, often mistaken for turquoise or jade, found in a remote mountain region in the Caribbean. High on an isolated mountain top, miners use only picks and shovels to work this unique Caribbean gemstone. The stone resembles the beautiful range of colors of the Caribbean waters. Always one-of-a-kind. Measures 5/8" wide, 1" long; total length 1-1/2". Weighs 7.4 gr./ 0.26 oz. Larimar has an extraordinary blue appearance similar to the color of the ocean in tropical areas. The stone itself is said to hold powerful healing energies, bringing balance and peace to its owner as it eases tension and stress. The setting is silver. Non-Indian made. * The necklace shown with the larimar pendant is not included but can be purchased in the necklace category listings. I have put them together for coloration and ideas for that complete look.
