Tiger Iron Pendant

 

 

A beautiful Tiger Iron pendant featuring a slightly chatoyant, highly polished cabochon mounted in fine sterling silver.  Despite its size this piece has a slim design hence is not too heavy so could be worn on a fine silver chain.   

Formed over two billion years ago, Tiger Iron is frequently mistaken for Tigers Eye but although both share similar colours, they are not the same stone.  Tiger Iron is made up of distinctive layers of Tigers Eye, red jasper and the mineral hematite and formed as tectonic plates smashed together creating the Australian continent.  The chatoyance is most visible in the golden coloured lines just right of centre.  Chatoyance is an optical phenomenon that's caused as light reflects off fibres within the stone and is well known for occurring in Tigers Eye.   

This striking Tiger Iron pendant was crafted by hand exclusively for Stone Mania by one of a team of talented artisans with whom we have been working for many years.
