Blue Pectolite var. Larimar
Natural rough blue piece of Pectolite var. Larimar. This material is rarely seen in natural form as most of it is polished and used in beads and jewelry. I was looking for a piece of natural Larimar to exhibit on this website, and finally found this specimen at the North Jersey Mineral show in Wayne, New Jersey, in 2011, at the booth of Alfredo Petrov.
