They say Larimar originates from a volcano in the Dominican Republic. It is a beautiful stone that is heavier and more expensive than turquoise. The maker, Elouise Kee, did her usual excellent silversmithing in crafting this pendant. It is 1.5-inches long—not counting the bale—and .75-inch at the widest point. Weight without the chain is 11.9-grams, or .415-ounces. It ships with an 18-inch solid Sterling silver box chain. Hallmarked "Elouise Kee." Always complimentary Priority shipping within the U.S.
