Tiger's Eye is a durable quartz composite with the usual quartz hardness of 7. It begins as the fibrous blue mineral called crocidolite, which is comprised of iron & sodium. Most of us known crocidolite as asbestos. The transformation begins when quartz becomes imbedded between the fibers of crocidolite. This process will result in one of two gemstones. A blue stone called Hawk's Eye or the golden brown stone called Tiger's Eye. This is a nice example Hawk's Eye. Of course the stone glistens more than a single picture will show. The stone is 38mm (1.5")tall and 14mm (.55") inch wide.
