History: Used in ancient times in the Dominican the more recent discoveries of Larimar started back in 1916 but it wasn’t made an official mineral until 1974. Norman Rilling and Miguel Mendez found small pieces of Larimar on the beach in the Dominican. It was named after Miguel’s daughter Larissa and the Spanish word for the sea which is Mar. Many say that Larimar is made from the sea or volcanic movements. They mainly exist where they are formed but through soil erosion pieces have broken off and then find their way to the seashore.
