Pietersite is a pseudomorph of Quartz after asbestos! Named after Sid Pieters, this famous stone hails from Namibia and has gained worldwide acclaim. Known for its colorful sectioned chatoyancy, pietersite captivates its audience at first glance. It grows in blue, red, gold, and sometimes a rare purple color! Once plentiful in the early 2000s, original deposits have now been exhausted. Top grade Pietersite shows 2 - 3 colors and has defined sections where the chatoyancy dances. It pushed us over the edge to become great sellers at Throwin Stones. We were mesmerized when we first saw Pietersite!
