Small Tiger's Eye 1 lb Polished Tumbled Rock Stone Tigereye
Tigereye (or Tiger's eye) is a quartz, usually with rich yellow and brown stripes, but also can be red or blue. It is so named for its chatoyant cat's eye effect. This material is from Africa.
It contains oriented fibers of crocidolite that have been replaced by silica. The fibers are twisted or crumpled instead of straight, reminiscent of sand and sunlight. Tigereye is also vitreous (hard, unbendable and glasslike). This tigereye is heat-treated to a dark, midnight blue.
Roman soldiers reportedly wore tigereye for protection in battle, and the stone was thought to be all-seeing due to its ocular appearance. However, tigereye made its gemstone debut sometime in the late 19th century. It was much more valuable back then than today, fetching several dollars per carat.
