Tiger Eye (variegated)
Tiger’s eye is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock with a golden to red-brown colour and a silky lustre. As members of the quartz group, tiger’s eye and the related blue-coloured mineral hawk’s eye gain their silky, lustrous appearance from the parallel intergrowth of quartz crystals and altered amphibole fibres that have mostly turned into limonite.
Tiger’s eye is actually quite rare in regard to worldwide distribution, but owing to sizable deposits located in South Africa and Thailand, it remains rather affordable, making it quite popular for jewellery. Tiger’s eye is also quite durable like all other varieties of quartz gemstones.
