Pietersite, also called "eagle's eye," was named in honor of Sid Pieters who discovered it in 1962 in Namibia, Africa. Pietersite is a name for a rare dark blue-grey breccia aggregate made up mainly of hawk's eye and tigereye. It is a variety of chalcedony (itself a variety of quartz) with embedded minerals in varying degrees of alteration. The fibers cause a blue chatoyancy.
Because its swirling colors resemble a storm, pietersite is known as tempest stone. Pietersite is said to center on the spiritual being and discharges negative energies and emotional turmoil restoring it to calm.
Pietersite is believed to be a stone of vision and can be used for a vision quest or shaman journey. According to metaphysical beliefs it increases the power of the third eye, creating a powerful increase in the energy of will and in one's intuitive capabilities. Pietersite is an extremely supportive and strengthening stone.
