Pietersite is a highly unique crystal that originates from Windhoek, Namibia. Immediately recognizable through its swirling mass of colors and textures, the pietersite stone is often referred to as the “Tempest” for its similarity to a wild desert storm. This uniquely shaded stone was discovered by Sid Pieters in 1962, who named it after his father Louis Pieters.
Pietersite has been used for many years as a great supporter of the nervous system, allowing those around it to experience decreased light-headedness, dizziness, or headaches. It is also used to heal dull eyesight or eye infections.
From an emotional and spiritual standpoint, pietersite can also provide healing. Feelings of low confidence can be transformed into courage, and any lack of inspiration can be uplifted through the regular use of this stone. It may also stimulate strange and prophetic dreams.
