Welcome to Rock 'n Gems


Pietersite was discovered by Sid Pieters in 1962 while he was prospecting some farmland in Namibia, Africa.  Pietersite has a connection to the storm element and is thus called the Tempest Stone, it is said to be protective when driving in bad weather and during storms and that it calms nervous animals and people.  Pietersite guards business and homes against storm damage and acts as a shield against the adverse effects of technology especially if you work long hours with a computer or live near a mobile phone tower.

It aligns the body energy while providing grounding, not to the Earth, but to the etheric body (which enables transmission of the spiritual energies); this rarity in grounding ability has facilitated travel throughout the spheres of existence, culminating in access to the akashic records (The Book of Life; Sacred Insights).  It is believed to hold the keys to the kingdom of heaven, use Pietersite to recognize truths, support your willpower and strengthen your inner guidance.  It works well during meditation to access higher levels of awareness and increasing your intuition, its used as a stone of vision.  Pietersite links daily consciousness to the spiritual realm.  It brings cleansing energy to aid you to create change.

This stone is used to, balance endocrine system and hormones that govern metabolism and stimulate the pituitary gland it is said to be helpful to lungs, liver, intestines, feet, legs.
