Yellow Tiger’s Eye Small Tumbled Stones
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 eye formations, 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 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.
These stones have been fully tumbled to develop a smooth polished finish.
