Tiger's Eye is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock with a golden to red-brown colour and a silky lustre.  Tiger's eye is mined mainly in South Africa and western Australia. It is a pseudomorph, meaning that it forms when one mineral replaces another. Tiger's eye forms when silica replaces the fibers of crocidolite (a form of aesbestos) and takes on their crystalline structure. The result is Tiger's Eye's distinctive, fiber-optic-like sheen, known as chatoyancy

This palm stone is a lovely size to hold in your hand and admire.  Please note: each stone is slightly unique.
