Larimar - Stone from the Dominican Republic

This being my first post I thought I would start with one of my favorite stones. Larimar. Larimar is a pectolite and can only be found in the Dominican Republic. Beautiful pale baby blue and white to the darkest azure of the sea. Larimar is rarely seen except by collectors. The finest stones are solid blue and deep in color but can be found in a variety of shades occaisionally even red, probably an iron inclusion in the stone. Take a look at the pictures to get an idea of the beauty of this stone.
