Nellite is mined near mined near the main Pietersite deposit in South Africa (Namibia). Nellite forms where tiger eye and pietersite meet - it's like a blend of both. Nellite has the golden, translucent glow of tiger eye in quartz, as well as the blue crocidolite of pietersite, which is sometimes present by itself and sometimes silicifed or partially silicified, and mixes randomly with the golden-colored quartz.
