Pietersite – Tempest Stone Holding the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven


I had so many people message and ask me about this stone that I thought I would repost it and share it with those that may not have had a chance to see it, and for those who requested wanting the information again.  Many shared feeling so drawn to get one themselves, had one they loved and were thankful for the reminder to reconnect with it, or were simply fascinated and feeling one on its way into their life now that the connection had been made, after my Facebook post on it.

So, I decided to re-share the info on Pietersite, a new favorite of mine. (As many know, I share a deep love for my crystal friends and have a knack for procuring very uniquely potent ones). And how I LOVE this stone and its properties. It is a great stone for supporting major transformation needed now on many levels and has been personally very appropriate in many ways for me currently as well.

The photos throughout this post are of my new friend (crystal skull ring) gifted this Christmas that I was intending to draw in. Here is some very cool info on the stone for those interested, that I have found in my researching. I always like to help people to know our crystal friends in the mineral kingdom, as it is their joy that they are here to co-create and co-support with us. They are examples for us to embrace the joys we are here to experience and share as our innate gifts.

Get ready to really rock-n-roll and shift your reality out of illusion, as this is a powerful stone for mega-empowered transformation, while also possessing gentle calming qualities, simultaneously. For myself, one with high nervous anxiety to the point of kundalini shaking experiences from each major transition and opening embraced, this is a great balancing and unconditionally loving one that mirrors the now with empowered, ascended and integrated energy, that works personally and collectively, simultaneously.

Information I gathered from various sources, which I have found to be very true so far in my experience of the stone:

PIETERSITE (Tempest Stone)- Stone of Change. The Pietersite stones mineral exhibits an energetic quality like the quartz. Pietersite has a connection to the storm element and is thus sometimes called the Tempest Stone and helps one see beyond the immediate to beauty in the All. Pietersite energy feels like a highly charged atmosphere of a thunderstorm that enhances telepathy, activates the mind, imagination, and stimulates psychic vision. It links daily consciousness to the spiritual. Used as a stone of vision, it works well during meditation to access higher levels of awareness, stimulating the third eye and increasing your inherent intuition. It enhances courage, tenacity, and ability to maintain or create what is yours. Spiritually and psychically, pietersite helps in working with angels, experiencing visions, and precognition, relating to feminine or goddess energy, as well as astral and dimensional travel. Emotionally, pietersite helps to relax, and release deep emotions in a calmer way. Physically, pietersite balances body fluids, improves nutrition, helps with gastrointestinal functions, and helps the endocrine glands, as it can be used to stimulate the pituitary gland, balances female hormones, alleviates PMS and menopause symptoms. It helps produce, in the proper quantity, the hormones concerned with growth, sex, metabolism, blood pressure and body temperature. Pietersite is also excellent for improving memory. Physically Pietersite helps to calm and activate the nervous system by strengthening the brain and nerves. It is helpful to lungs, liver, intestines, feet, legs.

Pietersite crystallizes in the form of masses, the structure a result of inclusions in jasper where the inclusions are pseudomorphs after asbestos. The color is blue/black and the mineral exhibits a chatoyant quality. It was discovered by Sid Pieters from Namibia South Africa in 1962 while prospecting on a farm there, and is truly lovely. He came across a rather heavy small stone covered in white limestone. As he could not see what was in the stone, he took it back to his work shop in Windhoek, where he cut it open to discover the beautiful blue and gold coloured patterns of the stone which he later named after himself. He returned to the farm in Namibia where he began mining the stone, but after a short period of time, due to most of the material begin stolen, he abandoned the mine. In the meantime however, he registered the find in the mineral records of Britain, and it was published in 1964 as Pietersite. “Of all the gemstones I have seen worldwide , Pietersite is one of the most beautiful, “says Mr Pieters. Due to these characteristics, Pietersite is one of the foremost stones used in jewelry and ornamental pieces worldwide, and as it is a very hard and tough stone lasts for many years.

This stone has come to represent the movement and chaos that break up those energy patterns which are resistant to change. The energy of Pietersite is very forceful and jolts us into personal change. This stone represents change and indicates a need to make changes in your present life. In a lay-out place this stone on the solar plexus chakra, where the flow of energy leads to assimilation and integration.

This mineral can be used to stimulate the pineal gland and to assist one during meditative states to experience visions and per-cognitive thoughts. It aligns the energy centers of the body while providing grounding, not to the Earth, but to the etheric body; this rarity in grounding ability has facilitated travel throughout the spheres of existence, culminating in access to the akashic records or your past lifetimes. It allows you to release your connection made in the past albeit early childhood in this lifetime or other lifetime, allowing you to be fully in the present. Pietersite is a spiritual activation stone, helping one find a new direction to move forward. Pietersite helps to unblock pathways that feel blocked or stagnant by activating the chakra system and allowing light energy into one energy field and body.

Pietersite has been said to hold the “keys to the kingdom of heaven” by linking the spiritual realm with everyday living, dispelling illusion and assisting one in the recognition of the beauty of the soul. It exhibits and energy conducive to the actualization of the loving characteristics of the “brotherhood” of humanity. It brings the potential of the individual to the perfection of the source of all being, stimulating dignified power and loving guidance. It promotes loyalty to the self and to the ultimate experience of life. They gently remind you that you are first a spiritual being experiencing the human condition, not the other way around. As it does this we are able to see the lessons and positive outcome of the struggle and problems we face in our daily lives.

It assists one in remaining open to experience, enabling the effect of an illuminated glory when one proceeds to “walk the stage of life’. It further allows one to see beyond the horizon or mirage, helping to support human courage, tenacity, and dauntless effort to both create and maintain beauty.

Pietersite is a good stone to use with other high vibration stones such as moldavite. By using them together one can experience a rapid spiritual transformation and revolutionary spiritual insight. Iolite with Pietersite can help one to develop their third eye and psychic ability. Calcite, Phenacite, Natrolite, and Scolecite can be used in conjunction with Pietersite to further enhance inner journeying.
