One of the amazing features of Pietersite is its chatoyance, which means that it changes colors and brightness when you change your angle of view. Dull browns can become bright copper, yellows, reds, or blues, sometimes looking like an abstract painting with bands and swirls of different colors.
This chatoyance is a result of the mineral structure of Pietersite. It is brecciated, which means that there are broken fragments of other minerals jumbled up and folded inside a matrix of different materials.
