A Recent discovery.
Sid Pieters discovered this stone and named it after his father just in 1962! Even if it’s a rare and very beautiful stone, it’s not well known nor used extensively in jewellery making. This silver pietersite pendant will definitely stand out.
A Rare, stunning mix.
Pietersite is actually a mix of other crystals: tiger’s eye and hawk’s eye. This type of crystal can only be found in Henan province (China) and in Namibia and it really is one of a kind.
The “Tempest Stone”
The most incredible thing about this stone is surely its unique optical effect called chatoyancy. On its black surface golden and silver shiny twirls of light appear and morph. It’s almost as watching a hurricane move over a dark sea from above. Watch the video to see it in action:
