etched flower mandala necklace with pietersite
This one-of-a-kind design features a hand-cut brass flower, which is comprised of two individual layers of hand-etched brass. I hand-cut and curled some of the petals up, to create dimension around a polished pietersite cabochon, nestled within a brass bezel. The 12.5 inch long brass chain allows the pendant to rest perfectly upon the chest. This is an eye-catching necklace, is perfect for layering and can easily be dressed up or down.
Pietersite is a brecciated aggregate of Tiger’s Eye, and from time to time, it is also referred to as Falcon’s Eye. Pietersite is a stone of many different shades, but the dominant colors are blue and yellow. Discovered in 1962 in Namibia, this stone is relatively rare. There are only two main deposits of Pietersite in the world — Hunan, China and Swakopmund, Namibia.
Pietersite reveals the beauty of the soul. It is known as a “storm stone” because of its ability to help whenever there are swift and chaotic changes in life, for example, when you need to rebuild some aspects of your life or transform it entirely. Pietersite instills the ability to see beyond the horizon; it disperses illusion and gives courage to create and appreciate beauty.
There is a saying that Pietersite holds the keys of the heavenly gates. This is entirely appropriate as this stone is very spiritual in its nature. Pietersite stimulates the third eye energy center as well as the pineal gland. This, in turn, opens the door for spiritual insights and glimpses into the transcendental world. The exotic look of Pietersite offers a stunning palette of many different colors, such as vivid gold, red, and blue. At times, because of the ability to change colors depending on viewing angle, this stone seems almost alive.
