  Found in colors ranging from a golden-brown to a gray-blue, Pietersite is a beautiful iridescent stone. Discovered in 1962 in Namibia, this stone has been referred to as the Tempest Stone.* As we know the term tempest refers to a storm. I find it highly interesting that while it is connected to elements that of a storm, Pietersite is said to hold "the keys to the kingdom of heaven"*.
    If one believes in metaphysical properties that of stones, Pietersite has a special energy relating to the spirituality within as well as helping to tune our capabilities to be conscious to what is around us; as well as being conscious to our own desires in life, and to help guide us to the paths that we must each follow. The energies within Pietersite help to clear confusion by relinking ourselves to our own inner guidance; therefore allowing us to recognize truth amidst a cloud of uncertainty.*
    The idea that it is the Tempest Stone and that it holds "the keys to the kingdom of heaven", symbolically represent the philosophical idea that each and every one of us have a path that we must follow. Yet however tempestuous it may be, by being conscious to our own inner truth, our inner guidance, we can each reach our destination despite the difficulty of the road ahead. Pietersite symbolizes the turmoil that we must each experience, but at the same time Pietersite reminds us that the storm shall always pass.
  These earrings display two pietersite stones that are a reddish-gold brown with faint spots of blue-grey. The feldspars help give the stones their iridescent quality.
