Red Tigers Eye Pendant
Red Tiger Eye Pendant Necklace
Red tigers eye pendant crafted in a timeless sterling silver setting. This distinctive gemstone is the same mineral as the more traditional variety of tigers eye except that it's heated which brings about a change in colour. Not seen as often as the brown and yellow coloured stone, red tigers eye is used purely for lapidary purposes but whilst being heated it loses any chatoyant qualities. Black tigers eye goes through the same process but retains chatoyance if present prior to the stone being heated.
The reason for this red tigers eye pendant being added to our collection of jewellery on sale in the Bargain Basement is because there is some minor damage on the back of the cabochon which took place whilst the pendant was being crafted. Two small sections of the top layer of the gemstone have broken away and whilst further polishing may have smoothed out these indentations, it would have meant removing another layer of the mineral. Due to the amount of work that goes into making each pendant, we prefer to reduce the price of those with minor anomalies or imperfections as opposed to having them re-made.
As with any item that you purchase online from Stone Mania, should you not be totally satisfied with this red tigers eye gemstone pendant it may be returned for a full refund (T&C's apply).
