While the Larimar trade has recently been corrupted by malicious actors due to the popularity of the gemstone, the Atlantis Blue Project seeks to use Stellar’s blockchain to thwart this activity and restore its balance.
The Blue Beauty
Larimar is a rare gemstone found in the province of Barahona of the Dominican Republic. The stone is coveted by many due to its rumored healing powers, ability to increase one’s communication skills, and desirability as a stone used in fine jewelry. Also known as the Atlantis Stone, Larimar’s blue color comes from its substitution of copper for calcium in its formation.
