More about Red Pietersite
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. 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.
Our red pietersite beads combine deep, rich, iridescent reds swirled with bronze-browns and grays.
Pietersite contains fibrous bands of blue, gold and/or red tiger eye type fibers that are cemented together by chalcedony.
