Black Tigers Eye
Black Tigers Eye Crystals
Highly polished black tigers eye healing crystals imported by Stone Mania from South Africa. Black tigers eye is produced by heating the brown and yellow coloured stone which causes it to change colour. Heat treatments are widely used around the world to enhance or change the colour of rocks and minerals and it's a practice that has been used for thousands of years.
Unlike the red variety which is also heated, black tigers eye retains its chatoyant properties. Chatoyance is an optical phenomenon present in certain minerals that's caused as light reflects off the mineral's fibrous structure, inclusions or cavities within the stone.
The traditional brown and yellow coloured tigers eye is by far the best known variety and has long been used for lapidary purposes and in particular for gemstones. As well as South Africa, Australia and the USA also export large quantities of this popular variety of quartz and smaller quantities can also be found in several other countries around the world.
These black tigers eye healing crystals are wonderfully tactile and with shades and markings varying widely from piece to piece, no two stones are the same. Ideal for use in crystal healing or to add to any collection of rocks and minerals.
