Caribbean stone Larimar

The larimar is also known as Atlantis stone and is a blue gemstone from the Caribbean. The only known source of this stone in the world is the Dominican Republic and therefore the larimar has become the national stone of this island state.

The stone’s fine and cloudy structure create a soft and delicate appearance. The larimar is one of the most precious minerals; its colour spectrum ranges from blue and light blue to turquoise blue and green and white shades.

The larimar and the four elements

The larimar has its origins in volcanic rock. The stone was first discovered in 1974 on the south-west coast of the Dominican Republic. These blue pebbles were washed ashore here – the actual source of the stones lies several kilometres inland. Thanks to its origins and special relationship with water, the larimar combines all four of the earth’s elements. A special feature which it shares with the Hotel Larimar.

“Animated by fire,
born of the earth,
moistened by water and
kissed by the air.”
