Pietersite - A Gemstone with an Eagle’s Eye


A highly unique crystal that has originated from Windhoek, Namibia. The pietersite gemstone is known for its similarity to the wild desert storm and is often referred to as "tempest". The stone is one of a kind and is commonly mistaken for a tiger's eye or hawk's eye. The stone is a mineral that is classified as a pseudomorph of quartz but is commonly referred to as a gem.


Appearance 


The stone is a combination of several colors, like gray, gold, dusty ochre, and midnight blue. The most valuable and rarest of them is the blue pietersite stone, followed by the red.


Availability 


Pietersite was earlier available in both China and Namibia. The variant found in China was much more tender and featured shades of brown, yellow, and orange. The variant found in Namibia offers more blues and grays.

The main mine where we first found pietersite stone in China has been shut down as it wasn't yielding satisfactory quality stones.

The stones are now being yielded from Namibia, but the production is very limited.
