Item: 12 each10X8mm Larimar Cabochons Material: Pectolite Type: Larimar Locality: Dominican Republic Hardness: 4.5 - 5 Design: Cabochon Cut By: Jack Freeman Dimensions: The average size is 9.6X7.8X4.5 and will set in any standard 10X8 setting. Weight: The average carat weight is 2.8 Cts Price: $3.85 each Note: So little has been written about this gem that no firm value criteria have been established. In general the stronger and purer the blue color the higher the price a piece commands. The degree of compactness is important as well in determining the fineness of polish on the finished stone. Large pieces are also at a premium. Lower quality material is often very light or greyish with large areas of white or reddish matrix. So, I have priced the cabochons about in the middle of the Retail price range of same and better quality material.
