Tiger's eye, or Tiger Eye, is a gorgeous chatoyant gemstone with alternating bands of golden to red-brown color and a silky luster. It has a fascinating and constantly shifting light effect where the gold and brown bands appear to keep reversing as the stone is moved relative to the light source.

Tiger's eye is actually a variety of quartz made chatoyant by subparallel intergrowth with altered amphibole fibres turned into limonite. It is primarily used for ornamental and lapidary purposes. Primary sources of tiger's eye are South Africa, Australia, and China.
