Blue Tiger Eye Beads
These blue tiger eye beads are a beautiful, shimmering navy blue color with lustrous, chatoyant stripes of brown and golden yellow. These haunting blues, browns, and golds shimmer and change as the light changes, giving this stone vibrancy and movement.
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).
