Tigereye

Found in many places around the world, including Canada, the USA, South Africa, Namibia, India, and Burma. Tigereye, Tiger Eye, or Tiger's Eye is a chatoyant gemstone - that distinctive "shimmery" effect - and is member of the quartz family.

Tigereye has a long history of use as a gemstone, adornment and good luck and protective charm.

Tiger eye is a "chatoyant" stone - which means that it has inclusions of fibrous crystals which give it a silky lustre. The inclusions run parallel in a specific direction, so the stone appears to shimmer slightly as you move it around.

Tiger Iron is composed of bands and layers of three different stones: Tiger's Eye, Jasper and Hematite.
