Tigers Eye Pendant
A particularly beautiful tigers eye pendant from our collection of ladies gemstone pendants. This highly polished cabochon exhibits impressive chatoyancy on both sides of the stone as it catches the light at certain angles. Mounted in a fine sterling silver setting it has been reduced because the bale at the top of the pendant is very slightly off centre. This minor defect does not affect the way this tigers eye pendant hangs and you'll need to have a keen eye to even notice it.
Tigers Eye is a popular gemstone which takes on a high polish and this particular piece has the added bonus of being exceptionally tactile. A brown variety of the mineral quartz, it's generally quite an easy stone to identify because of its distinctive colour and markings. South Africa is one of the world's largest exporters of tigers eye and when used for gemstones, it tends to be cut as a cabochon.
This lovely tigers eye pendant would be a great buy for anyone who loves this gemstone variety and who's not bothered about a very minor imperfection.
