Pietersite Mythology History:   Pietersites name comes from the person who discovered it and named it after his family name. Sid Pietersite was explaring Nambia Africa in 1962 when he first discovered and named Pietersite, since then Pietersite has also been found in China. Pietersite is made up and Tigers Eye and Hawks Eye (Blue Tigers Eye). Over time the stones have brecciated and have inclusion of Crocidolite in them which creates the Chatoyancy. Chatoyancy is when a stone is cut and it shows a band of bright luster which is created due to the inclusions in the stone.
