The lot features an original sterling silver bracelet set with rare Larimar and is from Navajo silversmith Tom Taylor. Larimar is a semi-precious stone with its own cache of best kept secrets. This is an extremely rare precious stone that has only been found in one very small location on the planet, a remote mountain range of the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. It is believed that an earthquake had shaken the mountains caused the hidden gems to dislodge and tumble into the local river. The two explorers who happened up the stone decided to call the beautiful stone larimar, a name that combined the Dominican explorer’s daughter’s name, Larissa, with the word Mar, the Spanish word for sea. A unique name for a unique stone. The unique color and patterns within larimar are the result of mixing and cooling that occurred as the stone formed. As a result of the unique minerals and cooling process during crystallization each piece has unique color and patterning. The piece is signed "TT Sterling" and is good condition. Measures overall 7"L inside circumference wrist size which includes the 1.5"W opening.
