- Pietersite was named in honor of its discovery by Sid Pieters. In 1962, Mr. Pieters was visiting a farm in Namibia , Africa , when he first laid eyes on a sample of this mineral. The stone appeared to be quite heavy for its size, so he took it to his workshop for further study. No sooner than had he cut the stone open, Pieters was stunned by the brilliant rays of his new finding. Mr. Pieters exclaimed, "Of all the gemstones I have seen in the world, this is one of the most beautiful." Pietersite has become known and valued by more and more people in recent years, and its price climbs steadily. A small cabochon can now sell at hundreds to even thousands of dollars. It has great potential of appreciation and is worth investing in. We were lucky enough to obtain an enormous rough pietersite stone. Our master artists hand carved and polished it for over a month, and now a stunning giant 16.5 inches in diameter and weighting 272.7 pounds pietersite sphere came into being. We can assure you this pietersite sphere is the largest one you will find in the world. It’s not only precious for its size, but also for its quality. The combination of red, yellow and blue colors presents an impressive visual beauty, making it astonishingly valuable. Furthermore, we are sure that there is no possibility that even one other pietersite sphere of such large size and fine quality will appear in the world. Even Rikoo, who has over 80% of the high-end pietersite available in the world, cannot make another pietersite sphere of similar size and such good quality in the future.
