Pietersite

HISTORICAL INFORMATION

Pietersite, sometimes known as Tempeststone, helps one see beyond the immediate to beauty in the all.

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; China and Africa. These two forms of pietersite are similar but still somewhat different from each other. The Chinese pietersite's fibrous mineral is a magnesium-rich alkalic amphibole. The African (Namibian) variety is mainly crocidolite.

Pietersite gemstone beads have been said to contain the "keys to the kingdom of heaven," dispelling illusion and assisting one in the recognition of the beauty of the soul.
