Our Larimar Maryland Crab Necklace is full of personality! A smooth cabochon of larimar, a rare and collectible Caribbean gemstone, brightens its shell. This necklace is a fun take on the classic Maryland blue crab. Larimar is a natural gemstone, so every piece will be slightly different. This lovely crab pendant hangs from an adjustable link style chain. 

Blue crabs are iconic to the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. Named for their blue claws, these creatures are vital to the bay ecosystem. Crabs shed their skins in order to grow, and therefore they can be a symbol of the cycles of life and rebirth. 

Larimar is a very rare gemstone. That is to say, only a small mountainous area in the Dominican Republic is where the gem can be found, and it is created by volcanic activity. Norman Rilling and Miguel Méndez discovered the gemstone in 1974, and Méndez created the name larimar, by combining his daughter's name, Larissa, and the Spanish word for sea, Mar. Larimar is a stunning Caribbean Sea blue color, which is perfect for our sea creature inspired jewelry.
