Rare top quality flashy blue Pietersite from Namibia, polished into a carbochon gemstone, for jewellery use such as pendants and charms or collection.
Pietersite is a rare dark-gray blue or reddish breccia aggregate (rock made up of fragments embedded in a matrix), comprised mostly of hawk's eye and tiger's eye. Pietersite contains inclusions of crocidolite, which increase its value, since they exhibit a characteristically beautiful and chaotic chatoyancy. When polished, pietersite exhibits an attractive silky and flashy luster. Blue Pietersite with Crocidolite is considered top grade and rare. Pietersite is only found in Henan Province, China, and Namibia, South Africa.
