These matched pair pear shaped Arizona Pietersite cabochons are 24 mm long by 14 mm at their widest and 5 mm thick. They are backed with a thin slice of black agate for stability.
This rare semi precious gemstone material is known as "Arizona Pietersite" because of its superb chatoyant cat's eye effect. It has also been called Arizona Tigereye. Cabochons cut from this material seem to glow with their own internal light.
This cabochon material is not the same as the original Pietersite found in Africa, or the different material also known as Pietersite found in China. This gemstone material is actually Serpentine with Chrysotile fibers and comes in several varieties-from gold to root beer to silver flash, and from green to brown Serpentine.
Cabochons are stones cut for jewelry and are measured in mm. One inch is equal to about 25 mm.
