2" Polished Tiger's Eye Egg With Stand

This is a 2" tall polished, tiger's eye egg. The tiger's eye has been mined from the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. The pictures are representative to the stone you will receive, but there is some variation in colors and patterning. Each egg comes with a small wooden stand.

Tiger's eye or Tiger Eye is a gorgeous, chatoyant gemstone with alternating banks 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 which is chatoyant because of subparallel intergrowth of quartz crystals and altered amphibole fibres that have turned into limonite. It's primarily used to ornamental and lapidary purposes. Primary sources of Tiger's Eye are South Africa, Australia and China.
