Tiger Eye

Tiger eye is a type of quartz and an asbestos psuedomorph which means that quartz has completely replaced and filled the molecules of asbestos. The chatoyant sheen that is common in Tiger Eye is a result of this quartz replacement in the fibers of the stone. There is also a natural blue tiger eye, which is sometimes called Hawk’s Eye. Red Tiger eye occurs when a tiger eye is subjected to volcanic heat.
