Pietersite was discovered by Sid Pieters in 1962 while he was prospecting some farmland in Namibia, Africa. After his discovery, he registered the find in the mineral records of Britain. His discovery was published in 1964, and the material was named Pietersite. Currently, there are only two known sources of Pietersite: Africa and China.

African Pietersite is the most sought after due to its wide range of colors. Colors include various blues, golds and reds, that may appear together or alone. BLUE IS THE RAREST COLOR, followed by red. The blues range from a baby blue to dark midnight hue. Golds can be light to very deep and rich, sometimes having a reddish hue. All fibrous color variations will have a superb and striking chatoyancy, the bright and subtly changing shimmer of color that moves along the surface of a gemstone as it is viewed from varying angles.

We are not professional photographers but, make every effort to accurately represent each item. As hard as we try, colors of the stones may vary due to differences in computer monitors.


Please realize it is common for large natural untreated stones to have healed fractures or pits. Typically, we feel this simply adds to the organic nature of a natural stone. Occasionally, there will be a stone with fractures or pits that are more pronounced and do not meet our standards for top quality. These stones are still unique and salable and are made available as 2nd Drawer items at a reduced price.
