Black Tigers Eye
Black Tigers Eye Slice
This eye-catching black tigers eye mineral is highly polished on just one side but it can't really be appreciated in our photo because it has been positioned in a way that minimises reflections. A subtle ghost-like sheen runs across the length of this black tigers eye just above centre and is visible irrespective of the angle at which the slice is being held. As it's gently moved back and forth slight chatoyance can be seen. The more light that's present the stronger the phenomenon because it's caused as light reflects off fibres within the stone.
The back of this black tigers eye slice has not been polished and does not exhibit chatoyance. It's a great piece that would fit comfortably into any collection of polished minerals.
If you're on Instagram we've added a clip of this black tigers eye stone being moved around in the light.
