The Historical Significance of Larimar

The history of Larimar is as fascinating as the stone itself. Discovered in the 1970s, it was named by Miguel Méndez, combining his daughter's name, Larissa, with the Spanish word for sea, 'mar', reflecting the ocean's colors in the stone. The indigenous Taino people of the Dominican Republic were the first to find Larimar, but it remained largely unknown to the rest of the world until its rediscovery.
