THE GEMSTONE TIGER'S EYE



Tiger's Eye, a popular yet inexpensive gemstone, is a pseudomorph of compact Quartz after thefibrous mineral Crocidolite. It is formed when the Quartz takes over and dissolves the Crocodolite, leaving the Quartz in a finely fibrous and chatoyant form. When polished, it's silky luster creates a beautiful chatoyant effect of moving layers of brown and yellow lines and waves.
