Opal is the traditional birthstone for October, and is also the stone given to celebrate the 14th year of marriage. The name "opal" comes from the Sanskrit word upala, which means precious stone. It is said that the "fire" in an opal can spark creativity. European cultures have long seen the opal as a symbol of hope and truth.

What is Larimar?

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. With our Opal and Larimar Ship's Wheel Necklace, you can appreciate this beautiful gemstone and its history. 

Some believe larimar to be a very spiritual stone. It is believed to increase speech and communication skills as well as aid the body's natural healing process.
