Natural Larimar Pendant
This phenomenal piece represents a collaboration between Jim , Ann and Debbie. Jim did the lapidary work, Ann suggested the design, and Debbie did the wire wrap. I had another similar piece, and sold it very quickly for $952 in our booth in Morro Bay. I asked a guy who sells lots of Larimar, mostly with silver bezels, how much a piece of so many carats of Larimar and how many carats (grams) of Gold, would sell for, and he said "$2000". I asked him wholesale or retail? and he said with a look of surprise "Wholesale, of course!"
The gal who bought the bought the Larimar, was very pleased, and went off wearing it on her gold chain.
Gemstone has a high crown.
Larimar is pectolite from the Dominican Republic. Named for the finder's daughter, Larissa, and mar, for the sea.
Gold wire wrap
1.2" ~30mm stone
The name "Larimar" comes from a combination of Larissa and Mar and was given to the stone by a Dominican who named the stone after his daughter Larissa and Mar, the Spanish word for sea.
This unique Caribbean gemstone sometimes may be mistaken for turquoise.
