I've got a ton of beads, most definitely. These are my absolute favorites. The quality is nothing short of amazing -- each pietersite bead looks like a tiny little Earth.

Making this necklace was one of those undeniable projects that finds its way into my life. I strung 10mm and 12mm pietersite on a heavy nylon beading cord and added a knot between each bead. I finished it off with a decorative sterling silver clasp. This necklace is long (41 inches), and can be doubled. It looks gorgeous either way!

An indulgence, for sure.

Info re: pietersite from www.mysticsculptress.com:

Pietersite, Blue Pietersite is sometimes called "Hawk's Eye" or "Eagle's Eye", 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. Currently there are only two known sources of Pietersite; China and Africa.

While Pietersite has the lovely chatoyancy of tiger eye, it is not found in continuously structured bands or fibers, more in swirls, swathes and fibrous (sometimes linear) segments. Thus the structure of the fibrous streaks in Pietersite may appear rather chaotic, and can flow or exist in many directions side-by-side like bold paint strokes.

Colors include various blues, golds and reds, that may appear together or alone. 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 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.
