Many people who visit the Sedona Artist Market mistake larimar for turquoise due to its deep sky-blue color. But larimar is not local to the Southwest. It was actually discovered in the Dominican Republic...so far the only place it has been found.
Gary James has an amazing display of pieces with larimar set in sterling silver. Some are original pieces and some are repurposed from older Mexican or Native American pieces. Gary will often replace an old or broken stone with a piece of larimar.
Here we have a 16in x 6mm sterling omega necklace with larimar slide pendant. The silverwork was done by artist Joe Esposito (signed and hallmarked “Sig-Espo”). The larimar stone is new and measures 16mm and weighs 38.8 grams.
