Pietersite is a variety of chalcedony that contains amphibole mineral fibers that result in a chatoyant effect similar to tiger's eye. It is found in a variety of colors including blue, grey, brown-red, brown, orange and yellow. It is named after Sid Pieters, a mineral dealer from Namibia that documented the discovery of this variety of chalcedony.
