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.

Average Pendant Size: 4.3 Centimetre with bail

The color, size and weight of Tiger's-Eye pendant may vary from set to set due to each pendant being hand made from natural material. The pendants you receive will be similar but not identical to the photo.

Interesting fact: "Tiger's-eye" is the most proper way for the name to be written. That is how it is written in Gemstones of the World by Walter Schumann, which is an authoritative book with the distinction of having more copies in print than any other book about gems. The stone also appears as "tiger's-eye" in GIA course materials.
