Tiger Eye is a finely fibrous, opaque quartz-limonite-aggregate with golden lights. The name was given to the stone because of the shimmering reflections reminiscent of that of a cat's pupil. With its distinctive gold and dark bands, Tiger Eye has a very noble and sublime appearance. It is mainly found in Australia, Burma, India, South Africa and the USA.
This material is mainly used as jewelry and is therefore for indoor use only.
