Tiger's Eye Slab (Hawks' Eye, Ox's Eye) Chatoyant Mineral
Tiger’s Eye Slab
Tiger’s eye is made of quartz that has replaced the asbestos mineral crocidolite. The original fibrous nature of the asbestos is preserved as chatoyant bands in the quartz. Tiger’s eye is typically golden but can also be blue (also called hawk’s eye) and red (also called ox’s eye).
Please enlarge and view the photographs for more detailed views. Shown wet to simulate polish. As with all natural rock, there may be fractures or pits to seal or work around. Each slab has the approximate dimensions listed. I use the longest and widest point and the thinnest, it’s not averaged.
We have worked hard with the lighting and the settings on the camera so that the colors are very accurate. Individual settings may affect color viewing on various devices and I cannot predict what your device will do, but on my computer, they’re dead on for color. I appreciate your business!
