Caption: Larimar, also called "Stefilia's Stone", is a rare blue variety of the silicate mineral pectolite, found practically exclusively in the Dominican Republic. Its coloration varies from white, light blue, green-blue to deep blue, a coloration resulting from calcium substituted by copper. Larimar is a semiprecious stone used in jewellery, and then most often set in silver.
