Pietersite is quite rare, and this is an excellent specimen cut and carved by a friend of mine. My camera cannot do its depth of color and color variations justice! There are beautiful blues and greens in this stone. The stone is comprised of Hawks Eye, Tiger Eye, and jasper cemented together with quartz. It can be from one of two places; Hunan, China, and Namibia, Africa, the bezel is scalloped, and the back plated is hand carved. Since this is a statement piece, I strung it on 29 inches of beautiful, thick, figure eight chain.
