Gold Tiger Eye - Polished

Price: $2.50

A lovely macrocrystalline Quartz known for its remarkable chatoyancy and rich layers of gold and brown color.

Tiger's-eye achieves its silky, lustrous appearance from the parallel intergrowth of quartz crystals and altered amphibole fibres that have mostly turned into limonite.

Tiger's-eye is one of the best-known gem materials that exhibit chatoyance - an optical phenomenon in which a band of reflected light, known as 'cat's-eye', moves just beneath the surface of the cabochon-cut gemstone.

This specimen has been tumbled and polished to reveal a glossy shine.

Size, coloration, and pattern may vary as these are natural products.

Age: 3+
