This shimmering with almost magical sparkle set includes necklace, bracelet and earrings. It is best to combine earrings plus bracelet, or necklace plus bracelet.
The beautiful stone in the center of the openwork necklace is pietersite with deep blue/brownish red tones. It is a magnificent, rare, colorful and chatoyant stone. Chinese Pietersite has striking combinations of gold, red and blue color segments; blue is the rarest color, followed by red. The blues range from a baby blue to dark midnight hue. Golds can be light to very deep and rich, sometimes having a reddish hue. All fibrous three color variations will have a superb and striking chatoyancy, the bright and subtly changing shimmer of color that moves along the surface of a gemstone as it is viewed from varying angles.
“Pietersite was discovered by Sid Pieters in 1962 while he was prospecting some farm land 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 on Earth; China and Africa.”
