About Tiger Eye Gemstone
Tiger’s Eye Gemstone formed from hawk’s eye where the iron from the decomposed crocidolite has oxidized to a brown color, keeping the fibrous structure. The luster is silky on fractures. Typically displays chatoyant stripes, because structural fibers are cooked or bent. It is sensitive to some acids. Found together with hawk-eye in slabs of a few inches thickness. Most important deposits are found in South Africa(where the export of raw material is forbidden), also in Australia, Burma(Myanmar), India, Namibia, and the United States (California). Used for necklaces, costume jewelry, and objets d’art. when cut en cabochon, the surface shows chatoyancy reminiscent of the eyes of a cat. Reddish tiger’s eye (a.k.a. Ox’s eye) is artificially dyed.
