Pietersite Oxidized Silver Wrap Pendant

$ 120.00
Like an abstract painting, this interesting stone displays wonderful patterns of color and texture within its surface, yet remains smooth to the touch. It carries a striking shimmer and chatoyancy similar to the characteristics of tiger eye. Golden/yellow and shades of blue are the predominant colors that come through on this lovely piece. This pietersite stone is is suspended by thick, sterling silver wire with a twisted texture. The silver was then oxidized to bring out its dramatic, rope like detail. The pendant measures 16mm in width and 50mm (2") in length, which includes the silver bail. In this listing you may choose to purchase the pendant alone or add the chain shown in the pictures. This is a sterling silver, oxidized, wheat chain with a length of 18".

History and Metaphysical Properties:

Pietersite was discovered by Sid Pieters in 1962 while he was prospecting some farmland in Namibia, Africa. After his discovery, he registered the find in the mineral records of Britain. His discovery was published in 1964, and the material was named pietersite. Currently there are only two known sources of pietersite; China and Africa.
