More about Pietersite
Pietersite is named for Sid Peters, the man who first discovered 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.
