Characteristic golden yellow and brown tiger’s eye colours with unusually high sheen for unprocessed 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'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.

Where items are long and thin (such as crystal or blade shapes) or any other shape, then the size refers to their largest dimension. It is important to see the pictures to know exactly what the appearance is. Our pictures do not showcase the best, they are as realistic as possible and include a R1 coin to demonstrate the actual size.
