Tiger's eye (also Tigers eye, Tiger eye) is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock that is yellow- to red-brown, with a silky luster. A member of the quartz group, it is a classic example of pseudomorphous replacement by silica of fibrous crocidolite (blue asbestos). An incompletely silicified blue variant is called Hawk's eye.
The gems are usually cut en cabochon in order to best display their chatoyancy. Red stones are brought about through gentle heat treatment. Honey-coloured stones have been used to imitate the much higher valued cat's eye chrysoberyl (cymophane), but the overall effect is unconvincing..
Excellent stone. Far exceeds my expectations. Great faceting, superb polish, sparkling and intriguing color! Speedy delivery! Thank you for a superior gem.0.71 CTS - VS NATURAL AUSTRALIAN SAPPHIRE [SAP116]
