A golden pietersite pendant in shimmering golds, browns and steely blues. An original piece by Clay Copeland in our Custom collection. Clay tastefully sets an extraordinary stone set in a sleek, modern minimalist design in 14K yellow gold. Very versatile, you’ll find the neutral earthy color palate goes well with almost everything.
Certainly the focal point of this piece is the large pietersite. High polish on this 19.70 ct. golden pietersite really shows off its intriguing chatoyancy. Chatoyancy is an optical reflective quality that looks like shimmering silk. Consequently, you’ll see mesmerizing movement and metallic-like color shifts in this stone. You may be most familiar with this phenomenon from the Tiger’s Eye gem. Therefore, pietersite is sometimes referred to as brecciated or fractured Tiger’s Eye. Some call it Tempest Stone for its stormy look. A rare stone typically mined in Namibia, Africa. It has a relatively high hardness of 7.
Lastly, a small citrine elegantly accents the golden tones of its larger partner.
