A diverse mix of mostly small slabs of polished tigers eye with lovely but variable levels of chatoyancy. Piece are roughly 3 to 5 mm thick and thus very light weight and very affordable. The kids should snap these up. Very funky inexpensive stock item for any shop.

Tiger's eye is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock with a golden to red-brown colour and a silky lustre. A quartz group member, tiger's eye and the related blue-coloured mineral hawk's eye gain their silky, lustrous appearance from the parallel intergrowth of quartz crystals and altered amphibole fibres that have mostly turned into limonite.
