Country of Origin: Arizona Desert

General information: The Arizona pietersite, also known by the name of Arizona tiger-eye, is in fact a serpentine and is produced when water from magma changed igneous rocks. These stones are known for their superb chatoyant, which appears to make them glow from their own internal light. 

Physical PropertiesThe fibrous veins that are seen in this stone are chrysotile and come in several varieties - from gold to root beer to silver flash, and from green to brown Serpentine.

Metaphysical properties: Serpentine soothes emotions and helps one overcome fear of change and look to the future with anticipation. Chrysotile is used to support honesty and integrity.
