Carved Larimar Sea Turtle necklace. The cute sea turtle has been beautifully carved in a piece of pretty larimar. The larimar has dark and light blue colors with a few spots of red. The red colors are due to higher concentrations of Iron in the stone. The turtle hangs from sterling silver wire and is centered on a strand of faceted sterling silver and larimar beads. The necklace is finished with a 2-inch extender on one end and a lobster clasp on the other. All metal is solid 925 sterling silver.
Larimar is also called "Stefilia's Stone", "Atlantis Stone" and the Caribbean Gem. It is a rare blue variety of the silicate mineral pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic. Larimar is a much sought-after stone. The mine is currently closed with no reopening date yet. Larimar's blue and white marbled patterns resemble sunlight reflections through crystal clear water onto a sandy beach. Larimar is like tropical water solidified! Wear a piece of the Caribbean ocean with you wherever you want.
