More About Blue Tiger Eye
Tiger Eye (a.k.a. Tiger’s Eye) is a fibrous variety of chalcedony that exhibits a property called chatoyancy, which is an optical reflectance effect that produces vertical, shimmering bands. Tiger Eye is formed when parallel veins of crocodilite fibers are first altered to iron oxides and then replaced by silica. Most deposits of Tiger Eye can be found in South Africa, India, Burma, Australia, Namibia and the United States (California).
