Larimar, a form of pectolite, was discovered in the Dominican Republic in 1974 by Mr. Mendez, a peace corp worker. It was named after his daughter, Larisa and mar, the Spanish word for sea. Larimar is quite a rare form of pectolite. Often mistaken for translucent turquoise or fine blue jade, larimar mirrors the beautiful waters that surround its island of origin.
