Pietersite is a member of the quartz family, and is a silicon dioxide mineral with a hexagonal (trigonal) crystal system. Pietersite was discovered by Sid Pieters in 1962 while he was prospecting some farmland in Namibia. 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.
Pietersiteis a fairly recent discovery and is also known as the Tempest Stone because of its connection to the storm element. It is said to hold ‘the keys to the kingdom of heaven’. It links everyday consciousness to the spiritual, reminding you that you are on a human journey.
Pietersite is a stone of vision and works strongly with the body during moving meditations. It is said to dispel the illusion of separateness and to remove beliefs and conditioning imposed by other people. It links you to the source of your own inner guidance and helps you to recognize the truth or falsehoods of other people words.
Psychologically, Pietersite promotes walking your own truth. It is an extremely supportive and strengthening stone, aiding in speaking out and exploring anything that is blocking your access to truth. It assists in in processing ancient conflicts and suppressed feelings.
