History & Origin:

Pietersite is a magnificent & enchanting variety of Chalcedony, embedded with fibres of the Amphibole mineral Riebeckite (in the form of Crocidolite.) It can be recognised by its unique swirling, thunder-like pattern, caused by broken mineral fragments that have been re-cemented together by Quartz (referred to as brecciated). Closely related to Tiger & Hawk’s Eye, this stone is quite rare & only found in two locations; Namibia, South Africa & Henan, China. It occurs in brilliant shades of blue, red, & gold, & displays a mesmerising chatoyant effect. Blue is the rarest & most sought after colour (often found in Africa), followed by red. Pietersite is named after its discoverer, Sid Pieters, a well-known gem & mineral dealer, who first described it in 1962.
