Tiger Iron consists of Red Jasper, Hematite, and Tiger eye.
It is a great example of a metamorphosed gemstone: More than 2 billion years ago, deposits of these three materials were slowly mashed together as tectonic plates shifted. The tremendous pressures on the original crystals resulted in the stones intricate, banded designs. Each stone can be seen distinctly in layers of gold, silver, brown and red.
Tiger Iron is found in Australia. Tiger Iron is found only in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Tiger Iron is mined from an Archaean formation in the Ord Ranges, near Port Hedland in Western Australia. This area is rich in iron ore used in the steel industry.
While the stone is many millennia old, it only recently has become known on the market.
