Pietersite is found only in Namibia in gem quality and to a lesser extent (and quality) in China. It is formed from asbestos, the same family as the tiger’s eye with the same fibrous structure. However, whereas the tigers’ eye fibres run in one direction, in Pietersite there is no particular formation or direction as the varying shades of golden brown, orange, blue, silver and grey all interact. Flashes of chatoyancy are seen when the stone is rotated. Also known as Tempest Stone, it is a great energizer on physical, mental and spiritual levels. it promotes the attitude that anything is possible and assists in finding the energy to achieve one’s goals.
