Pietersite, also called "eagle's eye," was named in honor of Sid Pieters who discovered it in 1962 in Namibia, Africa. Pietersite is a trade name for a dark blue-grey breccia aggregate made up mainly of hawk's eye and tigereye.
Tiger Eye is a macrocrystalline quartz whereas Pietersite is a chalcedony (microcrystalline quartz). This stone is very rare and only has two known localities, with only one of them still being active. The beauty, rarity, and limited quantity of the stone make it highly valuable.
