Blue Pietersite Beads

Pietersite is named for Sid Peters, the man who first discovered this gemstone while prospecting in Namibia, Africa in 1962. There only two known sources of Pietersite: the original source in Africa, and a more recently discovered source in China. Pietersite contains fibrous bands of blue, gold and/or red tiger eye type fibers that are cemented together by chalcedony. All of the color variations have a striking chatoyancy, the bright shimmer of color that moves along the surface of a gemstone as it is viewed from varying angles.

These blue pietersite beads are from rocks that are nearly all blue -- something that isn't very easy to find and makes blue pietersite very exciting! Our Blue Pietersite gemstone beads combine rich iridescent golden browns and hints of red swirled on a background of navy blues.
