Tigers Eye Pendant

 

 

Pretty Tigers Eye ladies pendant featuring a highly polished cabochon mounted in a hand crafted sterling silver setting.  This distinctive gemstone exhibits nice chatoyance which is an optical effect that's commonly seen in this yellow and brown variety of the mineral quartz.  As the gemstone is gently moved around capturing the light at various angles, a kind of sheen becomes visible which is the result of light reflecting off the fibres within the stone. Although this can be seen in several different minerals it is best known for being present in Tigers Eye.   

Tigers Eye is one of the old time favourites in the world of rocks and minerals and has always been popular as a lapidary material.  The largest quantities come from one particular region in South Africa and also from Australia. 

In Ancient Rome soldiers wore or carried Tigers Eye because they believed it was an all seeing eye which offered protection.  The stone is still used today for psychic protection and features prominently in the world of crystal healing
