WHAT IS TIGER EYE:
Tiger's eye is formed when parallel veins of crocidolite (blue asbestos) fibres are first altered to iron oxides and then replaced by silica.
As a result it is more opaque, and has a rich yellow to brown colour. When cut en cabochon, the gem has a fine lustre.
The major source of Tiger's Eye is Griquatown West, in South Africa.
