What Is Pietersite?
Pietersite is an incredibly rare and enchanting crystal most commonly found in Namibia and China. A member of the quartz family, pietersite is a silicified Riebeckite with traces of Limonite.
Categorized as a chalcedony stone, pietersite is a microcrystalline quartz that can be found in masses of jasper. The distinctive shimmering gold streaks are what makes pietersite so special, and is often accompanied by abstract swirls of color that liken it to an impressionistic oil painting.
What Color Is Pietersite?
Pietersite is a combination of several colors. Most often, it can be found in various shades of midnight blue, grey, gold, and dusty ochre. Blue pietersite is considered amongst the most valuable of its kind, but any combination of the stone’s colors makes for an entrancing appearance. Up close, a polished stone resembles the intricate weather patterns of a planet in outer space.
