A little bit of the Caribbean

Gemstones, Jewelry, Rings

I just learned that the gemstone Larimar comes only from the Dominican Republic.  Wikipedia describes it as “a rare blue variety of pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean. Its coloration varies from white, light-blue, green-blue to deep blue.” Anyway, here’s a wonderful freeform specimen I recently set in sterling, which I oxidized to set off the brilliant sky/sea blue of the larimar. I love the touches of red in it….I actually took these photos at 6pm and love the subtle light – no harsh shadows!
