Blue pectolite was apparently first found in the Dominican Republic in 1916 by Father Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren. It was not until 1974 that blue pectolite was rediscovered by a visiting member of the US Peace Corps, Norman Rilling, along with a local Dominican, Miguel Méndez. They found a significant supply of blue pectolite near the town of Los Chupaderos, a few kilometers from the City of Barahona in the southwest of the Dominican Republic. They named the stone after Méndez's daughter, Larissa, combined with the Spanish word for "sea" (mar). Larimar's color does bear a striking resemblance to the color of the tropical Caribbean sea.
