Natural Blue Tiger\'s Eye rough great for cutting making Jewelry. 1 pound 8.2 Onces. 3\" x 3 1/2\" x 1 1/2\" thick in size.Tiger\'s eye is a variety of Quartz which exhibits a fascinating and constantly shifting light effect since the alternating silky gold and brown bands keep reversing their appearance with the slightest change in position of the light source or of the stone. This effect is caused by parallel intergrowth of Quartz crystals and altered amphibole fibres that mostly turned into limonite.Tiger\'s eye is normally golden brown to brownish-gold in color but some materials may contain more iron content which can result in more reddish colored. Tiger\'s eye is typically multicolored with brown, black or golden colored stripes and wavy patterns. Its chatoyancy can result in darker or lighter color tones depending on the viewing angle.Tiger\'s eye is famed for its remarkable chatoyancy and its attractive golden brown red colors. It is closely related to hawk\'s eye and pietersite, both of which exhibit similar chatoyancy. Tiger\'s eye is actually formed from hawk\'s eye. During the pseudomorph transformation process, materials that contain more iron oxide result in brownish tiger\'s eye; less oxidation and less iron tends toward the original blue color of crocidolite.Chemical Formula: SiO2, Silicon Dioxide; Hardness: 7;(The above information is provided solely for informational purpose.
