Van Gogh Larimar is rarer than the AAA1 Larimar, is found deep in the veins of the Larimar mine in Bahoruco Dominican Republic. Van Gogh is a combination of different color of pectilite that formed together for million of years.

Angel Larimar has deep blue with dark grey or black veins or patterns through out the specimen. Some of this pattern are found as a whole specimen with its beautiful colors and designs, but most of the time is found at the edges of a rough AAA larimar rock. Spheres of this pattern are very difficult to make due to the thinnest of the pattern that blends into the Larimar.
Fancy Tan Larimar although no official name has been given to this style of Pectolite, the beautiful soft tan color is eye catching. Most of the Fancy larimar seemed to have a significant pattern that resembles petrified wood or some sort of petrified plant.
