The Dominican jeweller polished the rock and saw just what beauty had been hiding from humanity. Miguel Méndez named his discovery in part after his daughter Larisa and in part after the Spanish word for sea, after the colour of the gem. That is how the blue precious gem with white marks, which look so much like sea waves, got its name. This...
