Tiger's Eye forms when Quartz forms over existing bluish-gray Crocidolite, and eventually entirely replaces it. Crocidolite is a type of asbestos mineral, which means its composition is of fine, dense fibers. These fibers form in a parallel yet wavy orientation, and this causes the intriguing chatoyant effect exhibited in Tiger's Eye. During the replacement process, the iron within the Crocidolite dissolves and stains the Quartz, thereby providing the golden yellow to brown color of the Tiger's Eye.

Sophistically carved birds sitting on a beautiful quartz in various positions. Shop this one of a kind gift from Houston Museum of Natural Science.

Birds: 9 inches long, 4.5 inches tall
Base: approximately 7x7 inches, 2.75 inches tall
