Tigers eye is a well known mineral that most people recognise as a yellow and brown coloured stone however it can also be found in red, blue and black. These alternative colours are produced by exposing the stone to heat but with that said, blue tigers eye also occurs naturally and tends to be known as Hawks Eye.
The chatoyance in this black tigers eye cabochon is best seen as the pendant is gently moved around in good light. This optical phenomenon is caused as light interacts with the crystals and fibres within the stone and although it also occurs in several other minerals, its presence is best known in tigers eye.
Made entirely by hand, this black tigers eye pendant has been reduced because there are some very minor anomalies with the way it has been crafted but nothing that's noticeable without careful examination. As with any product purchased from Stone Mania, should you not be entirely satisfied with this tigers eye gemstone pendant it may be returned for a full refund (T&C's apply).
