Tiger's Eye stones with characteristic golden to red-brown colours with good chatoyant effect
Tiger's eye (also called tiger eye) is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock with a golden to red-brown colour and a silky lustre.
In Tiger's Eye formation, quartz crystallises over an amphibole fibrous material (often crocidolite, a form of asbestos). This fibrous material is gradually replaced by quartz and the alignment of the replacement quartz gives the characteristic chatoyant effect. Tiger's eye is formed by parallel intergrowth of quartz crystals as the quartz crystals replace the amphibole fibres. The replacement quartz and structure contains iron (limonite) which contributes to the characteristic colour.
Longest dimension is 5mm-15mm with average length about 9mm.
These are ideal for use in resin art.
