Blue Topaz is extremely rare in its natural form. It is usually colour enhanced somehow to bring it to its beautiful sky-blue clear lustre. The use of topaz goes back to Egyptian times when the ancient Egyptians believed that topaz received its sparkle and hue from the Sun God, Ra. Blue topaz is the state stone of Texas.
Pietersite is one of the rarest stones and is only found in one mine complex in Namibia, Southern Africa. It was discovered in 1963 by a farmer prospecting for gold and ever since it has been one of the most sought after gemstones. It is a member of the Tiger’s Eye family of stones and is a real connoisseur/collector’s stone.
