Rhodium is a precious metal, a member of the platinum family. Rhodiumelectroplating is used, especially on jewelry, to provide a surface that will resist scratches and tarnish, and give a white, reflective appearance. Rhodium plating is most often found on white gold and silver.
According to The Gemological Institute of America, Larimar is identified as a blue pectolite found in Dominican Republic and nowhere else in the world. The color of the stones ranges from light blue with touches of aquamarine to strong, deep, electric blues. Natural white veined patterns make each piece unique. While pectolite is found in other places throughout the world, unique volcanic circumstances on the island created the exquisite blues exhibited in the Larimar variety, which is very unique, with only one known mine in the world. Its lovely color is very reminiscent of the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea .
