Black Tigers Eye

 

 

Black tigers eye is the same mineral as yellow tigers eye which is often simply known as tigers eye or tiger eye.  The darkened colouration in the black variety is caused by exposure to heat whether that be naturally or through heat treatments.  The red variety of tigers eye is also created by exposing the stone to heat.

This polished black tigers eye mineral boasts exceptional colour and is also fascinatingly chatoyant.  Chatoyance is an optical phenomenon that can be seen in certain stones but in particular tigers eye.  It's caused as light interacts with the crystals but to fully appreciate it the stone has to catch the light at a specific angle which makes capturing chatoyancy in a photograph quite a challenge.

The unique shape, exceptional polish and chatoyancy seen in this black tigers eye mineral all contribute to it being an outstanding piece that you'll love having as part of your collection.  It's worth mentioning that it doesn't stand up on its own so will need to be supported or placed on a small stand.
