Tigers Eye Pendant
Tigers Eye Pendant in Sterling Silver
Highly polished Tigers Eye pendant crafted for Stone Mania in a fine sterling silver setting.
Tigers Eye is a popular and highly sought after lapidary material that's widely used in items of jewellery. It's a distinctive variety of the mineral quartz that's easily recognised because of its colour and markings. It takes on a high polish and stones are well known for their chatoyance, this is an optical phenomenon that gives the impression the colour and markings are moving as the stone catches the light at various angles.
South Africa is one of the world's largest exporters of the mineral Tigers Eye and when used as a gemstone, it's usually cut as a cabochon.
This ladies Tigers Eye pendant has been added to our Bargain Basement because there is a minor imperfection with the shape of the setting. To notice you'll need to look closely but the magnificence of the gemstone makes it difficult to concentrate on anything else. When gently moved back and forth in good light the chatoyancy in this highly polished cabochon can clearly be seen.
