Golden Tigereye Designer Freeform Cabochon Tiger's Eye
Lovely, very flashy gold Tigereye from Africa. Tigereye (or Tiger's eye) is a quartz usually with rich yellow and brown stripes.
This large, beautiful and bright ,freeform custom cut semi precious stone cabochon is 51 mm or 2 inches long by 24 mm wide at the top and 29 mm wide at the bottom and 4 mm thick.
It contains oriented fibers of crocidolite that have been replaced by silica.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).
With its strong chatoyance, the gemstone gets its name from its resemblance to the eye of a tiger.
Metaphysical Properties of Tiger's Eye: Tigereye is said to enhance integrity, willpower, practicality and correct use of power. It is a stone that brings good luck, and prosperity, often in the form of money. It is a very protective stone, and is especially protective during travel.
Cabochons are stones cut for jewelry and are measured in mm. One inch is equal to about 25 mm. 13 mm is only about 1/2 inch.
