Description

Tiger’s eye is a gold-brown, opaque gemstone variety of fibrous quartz. More specifically, it is a variety of macrocrystalline quartz. However, unlike most quartz gemstones, tiger’s eye is actually a ‘pseudomorph’ of quartz. A ‘pseudomorph’ is what geologists refer to as any mineral that transforms into another mineral.
