Tiger Iron Pendant

 

 

Striking Tiger Iron pendant featuring a highly polished and meticulously chosen cabochon mounted in a fine sterling silver setting.  

Tiger iron was formed over two billion years ago and is frequently mistaken for the mineral Tigers Eye.  Although Tigers Eye is present in Tiger Iron it's sandwiched between layers of red Jasper and hematite.

This highly polished gemstone boasts distinctive stripes which are the layers of the rock and it's also very slightly chatoyant. Chatoyance is an optical phenomenon that's caused by the reflectance of light on fibrous inclusions but to be fully appreciated the stone needs to be moved gently moved back and forth so that it catches light at various angles. The dark steely grey coloured sections are inclusions of the mineral hematite and presence of this steely grey coloured mineral distinguishes Tiger Iron from Tigers Eye.
