One day, I'll make you scream, Steven.
Larimar, nicknamed "Little Larimar," is a formerly-corrupted Crystal Gem that first appeared in "Monster Buddies". While corrupted (at the time of her debut), she was known as the Ice Monster. In "Change Your Mind", she was healed along with the other corrupted Gems at Rose's Fountain. She first spoke in "Guidance," where she expressed her love for human screams and laughter and was given the job of handing out prizes to people at Beach City Funland.

In her corrupted form, she possessed a bulky body that was colored varying icy shades of blue. Larimar also possessed two, very large arms with four spiky fingers each and two short legs. Her head was carved into five sharp protrusions. She had two dark, hexagonal eyes and a gaping, dark mouth lined with sharp teeth. She was slightly taller than Garnet.
In her normal, uncorrupted state, she has a bright cyan complexion, as well as a prism-shaped head with three spikes on top. Her eyes always appear to be closed, giving her a permanently cheerful expression. She also has claws, instead of normal fingers (possibly to assist her in her pre-corruption duty as an ice sculptor). She wears a blue shirt with elbow-length sleeves as well as puffy dark blue shorts and a pair of blue knee-length boots with dark blue spots on them. She also wears a light blue scarf. She is also very small in size (hence her name "Little" Larimar). Her upper lip is jagged, resembling the teeth of her corrupted form. Her appearance, according to her concept art, still remains "frozen" from corruption, which may explain her headshape and sharp claws, however it is unconfirmed if this is truly the case.
Larimar is a kind-hearted Gem, who wishes to make others happy. Her misunderstandings of how Earth's society functions lead her to get confused over simple things, such as screams being sounds of joy. She also mentioned to Steven that screams are her favorite sound on Earth, which worried him. Despite this, it is shown that Larimar very much enjoys seeing children laugh, and wishes to make it her purpose on Earth to help them do so by giving out prizes at Beach City Funland.
- Sharp Claws: Larimar possesses the ability to carve out snow cones out of the ice pillars that Snowflake Obsidian forms. She also used to carve out ice sculptures for the Diamonds back on Homeworld.
Thousands of Years Ago
On Homeworld, Larimar constructed ice sculptures and statues for the Diamonds. Eventually, Larimar defected from Homeworld, which made her become a member of the Crystal Gems. Later on, she fought in the Rebellion on Earth until its very end but was unable to escape the Diamonds' Corrupting Light, mutating into a Corrupted Gem upon exposure to the light. In her corrupted state, she found refuge in an ice cavern.
The Crystal Gems are shown fighting Larimar in the large cavern inside a snowy mountain. She's shown to be preventing them from acquiring a powerful, elemental artifact called the Shooting Star. After her arm falls off, Garnet deals the final blow on her, thus, defeating Larimar. Pearl bubbles her Gem and transports it back to the Burning Room. Her Gem is seen again when Garnet bubbles Steven to The Burning Room and is later seen again when Steven bubbles Nephrite's gemstone to the room along with the Chaaaaps.
She is briefly mentioned by Bismuth after being unbubbled in The Burning Room.
She appears talking to Snowflake Obsidian at Rose's Fountain.
Larimar, uncorrupted during the events of "Change Your Mind", appears as a resident of Little Homeworld.
She appears in "Guidance" where she and Snowflake Obsidian both have jobs as snowcone saleswomen. During the episode, she exclaims how she loves the excited screams of people, and Steven tasks her with running the roller coaster due to this interest, which quickly goes awry. In the final moments of the episode, she is shown to have taken a liking to giving stuffed toys to children, as their laughter gives her as much joy as people's screams.
Larimar briefly stars in Steven's advertisement for Little Homeschool. When Steven thanks her, she says she is an actor.
Larimar appears briefly as a part of Ruby's Gem-Scouts group.
She plays baseball at Little Homeworld with Steven.
She watches in horror as Monster Steven walks past her.
Larimar stands in front of the Big Donut, waving goodbye to Steven.

- A corrupted version of Larimar, as well as a stronger version of her, appear as antagonists in the flash game, Sword Dancers.
- In her corrupted form, she bore a resemblance to the Freezies from the Super Mario series, except she had arms and legs.
- Larimar was the fifth corrupted gem to have her Gem type confirmed outside of the series. The other ones were Watermelon Tourmaline, followed by Orange Spodumene, Blue Lace Agate, Lace Amethyst, Albite, Blue Chalcedony, Moonstone, Chrysocolla, White Topaz, and Grossular Diopside.
- In "Change Your Mind", a stout blue Gem appears talking to Snowflake Obsidian. It was stated by Rebecca Sugar in the DVD documentary for Steven Universe: The Movie that this Gem was originally going to be Larimar's uncorrupted form, but was replaced in favor of the current one. It is unlikely that this blue Gem will ever reappear as a result.
- Her boots resemble a real larimar gemstone.
- Larimar is the second Gem shown to have a non-native English accent, with the Swedish voice actress Michelle Maryk.
- Larimar and Orange Spodumene are the first Gems shown to have only four fingers on each hand instead of five.
- Larimar's gem has a similar appearance to a Rupee from The Legend of Zelda series.
|She has an elongated, hexagonal gemstone colored a bright blue which is located on her forehead. While she was corrupted, her gemstone was inside her head and it was chipped on the 6th facet.|
