Tigers eye pendant from our collection of crystals, rocks and minerals. This highly polished stone exhibits hues of brown which vary from light to dark and slight chatoyance can also be seen. Chatoyance is an optical phenomenon which occurs in just a few natural minerals but is best known in tigers eye. As light reflects off fibres within the stone colours and markings appear to change and shimmer which can give the impression they're actually moving. The extent to which this can be seen depends on the amount of light that's being reflected and from which angle.
