This stone really jumped out at me when I saw it mixed among many others. After reading its description I can understand why! Known as the Tempest Stone, its highly charged energy is almost tangible. Just as lightning clears the air and makes all things new, Pietersite discharges negative energies and emotional turmoil, and cleanses the aura, restoring it to calm.
Pietersite is a powerful protection stone, especially against the
elements. It calms nervous people and animals during storms, protects
when driving in bad weather, and guards homes and businesses against
storm damage. It also acts as a shield against the adverse effects of
technology, particularly if you work long hours with a computer or live
near a mobile phone mast
For those who have tried and failed many times to beat an addiction,

explores causative influences, increases the resolve and lends will power
in following a curative program.

strength, and is a nervous-system stone, useful for stimulating and
strengthening the nerves and brain. It eases headaches, nervous diseases, breathing difficulties, stomach pain and dizziness. It also stimulates the pituitary gland, balancing
the endocrine system and the production of hormones governing
metabolism, blood pressure, growth, sex, and body temperature. Thought to ease eye infections, Pietersite is also reported by some users to improve long-distance focus and night vision
Pietersite is an important tool in bringing pent-up, internalized
feelings and conflicts to the surface, allowing the unsaid and
unexamined to erupt in an emotional outpouring that not only clears the
air, but begins the process of healing. An excellent ally for those who are stuck or unable to
make progress, Pietersite helps to clear stagnant energies, habits and
life patterns, and reveals new directions for one's life. It also lends
the will to take action toward those new goals. Pietersite removes the illusion of separateness, and
the beliefs and conditioning imposed by others. It brings one to the
source of their own inner guidance, and assists one in recognizing the
truth or falsehood of others' words or actions. It promotes speaking out
and exploring anything that may hinder access to one's own truth.
Pietersite is a variety of Quartz, composed naturally of Tiger's Eye,
Hawk's Eye and Jasper, and is characterized by an incredible chatoyancy (cat's eye effect or optical reflectance effect)
and brilliance of life within the stone. It is found in Africa. The most common Pietersite is gold but it is also rarely seen in red and even rarer is blue.
