Tigers Eye


Geology and History


Tiger’s eye is a chatoyant gemstone, usually a metamorphic rock that is a golden to red-brown colour with a silky luster. A member of the Quartz group it is a classic example of pseudomorphous replacement by silica of fibrous Crocidolite (blue asbestos). An incompletely silicified blue variant is called Hawk or Falcon Eye. The Red Tiger Eye occurs when the gold is heated either naturally or by man.

Tiger’s eye exhibits a fascinating and constantly shifting light effect since the alternating silky gold and brown bands keep reversing their appearance with the slightest change in position of the light source or of the stone. This effect is caused by parallel intergrowth of Quartz crystals & altered Amphibole fibers that have mostly turned into Limonite.
