I love these golden yellow and blue Pietersite coin beads! They are a mix of yellow and blue tiger eye and display all the loveliness of Tiger Eye. I have used tiny golden pyrite beads to highlight these beads, along with a larger marquis-shaped bead at one end. A beautiful bracelet made of beautiful beads. A pair of matching earrings completes the set.
Pietersite is named after its discoverer Sid Pieters who found the gemstone in Namibia, Africa. Pietersite is a mix of blue and yellow Tiger Eye. It displays the same properties as Tiger Eye, such as when light shining on the stone seems to move across the surface of the stone, a phenomenon known as 'Chatoyancy' coming from the French word for cat. Pietersite has value since its sources are limited, mined only in Namibia and a single mine in China.
