Pietersite is sometimes called Hawk's Eye or Eagle's Eye and was discovered by Sid Pieters in 1962. The structure of the fibrous streaks in pietersite can flow or exist in many directions side-by-side like bold paint strokes. Colors include various blues, golds and reds, that may appear together or alone. The fibrous color variations have a superb and striking chatoyancy, the bright and subtly changing shimmer of color that moves along the surface of a gemstone as it is viewed from varying angles.
