More about Pietersite
Earthy AND iridescent? Yes, please! Pietersite is named for Sid Peters, the man who found this gemstone while prospecting in Namibia, Africa in 1962. These pietersite beads combine rich iridescent golden browns and hints of red swirled on a background of navy blues.
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.
The look of this stone might evoke a storm, but metaphysically it is said that Pietersite helps relieve inner turmoil, not stoke it. Many use this stone to aid in visionary spiritual journeys.
