SL203 Chinese Pietersite

SL203 Chinese Pietersite


This is an amazing Chinese Pietersite slab! It measures 7″ x 4 3/4″ x 1/4″ and weighs nearly 3/4 lbs. This particular slab is durable enough to cut and polish for cabochons and other projects. Take note of the last photo showing slab wet to give an idea of how it could look polished.

Pietersite was discovered by Sid Pieters in 1962 while prospecting farmland in Namibia, Africa and was named after him in 1964. Currently there are only two known sources of Pietersite: Africa and China. Pietersite is considered a type of Tiger Eye, having the same properties but with different patterns due to it’s brecciated formation. While Pietersite has the lovely chatoyancy of Tiger Eye, it is not found in continuously structured bands but rather in swirls, swathes and fibrous (sometimes linear) segments. They appear chaotic and can exist in many directions like bold paint strokes. African Pietersite is the most sought after due to it’s wide range of color which include various blues, golds, and reds with blue being the rarest followed by red.
