PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Pietersite is a trade name for a dark blue-grey breccia aggregate made up mainly of hawk's eye and tiger-eye. It is a variety of chalcedony (itself a variety of quartz) with embedded fibres of amphibole minerals in varying degrees of alteration. The fibres cause a blue chatoyancy like that seen in tiger-eye. A grade rough material sells for R2000 per kg. Therefore, lower quality material tends to be more affordable. Pietersite is always on the top wish lists for most collectors. Only known from the Outjo region of Namibia! Highly variable in price, thus pricing is very grade dependant. Items are as shown.
