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 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.
