I got a newsletter email from Ed today. He is offering all pietersite on his website at 25% off. He is about to return to India in 10 days and can easily ship before then.

I''ve not seen this on PS before, but I think they would make some really lovely cabochon pendants or maybe even rings or a cool bracelet. I bet some of the etsy sellers could make some lovely pieces. The stones are super affordable for anyone wanting a little something new.

Seems the stones come from China or Africa and folks he knows provided him with the stones on his site from the African mine.

I emailed him asking how to buy them. He indicated that 25% would be taken off the price listed and he''d send a paypal invoice. He is a really nice guy. He was in Denver recently, but I missed him when I had to be out of town for a funeral.

http://www.kashmirblue.com/Coloredstones/Pietersite/pietersite.html Check out this link. What do you think? Which ones interest you the most? I need some help picking a couple.

Fun stuff - I''ve only seen it once (Natural History Museum in London''s gemmology department) - nice alternative to tigers eye/hawks eye etc.

Did a quick google and it seems that you want it to show as much blue as possible.

Would make nice cufflinks or a pendant I think. Could also be fun in a necklace with chain linked bezel set cabs (al la DBTY) - maybe mix a few pieces of this with tiger''s eye, hawk''s eye and red tiger''s eye cabs as well since they are all the same family.

I''d also set in yellow gold.

I saw the notes about blue being the most desirable, but some of the mixed color pieces are beautiful.

I know the 2nd one may not be the best but the swirls remind me of our planet earth.
