Pietersite was discovered by Sid Pieters in 1962 while prospecting in Namibia, Africa. Pietersite is considered a type of tiger's eye, having the same properties as tiger's eye but with different patterns due to its brecciated formation.
African pietersite is the most sought after pietersite due to its wide rage of colors. Colors include various blues, golds and reds, that may appear together or alone. Blue is the rarest color, followed by red. When I have some rough my cabochons will come from 2 sources, Africa and China, this will be identified in their descriptions.
