Tiger's Eye Mine

English Version


Each layer of tiger's eye can differ in thickness, color and formation quality. The minimum size collected is .25 inches thick, while the biggest layer is about 9 inches thick. However, the most common thickness is between .75 and 2.5 inches. Any layer wider than 6 inches is uncommon and usually lower quality. Colors range from bright gold to grayish-yellow and from golden brown to opaque brown in the tiger's eye; hawk's eye can vary from a washed-out, uneven blue to deep, solid blue pieces. The fibrous crystal structure is variable as well: the largest crystals frequently form loosely-bound and incompletely, leaving occasional hollows in the stone, while the thinnest, finest crystal structure is denser and produces the smoothest appearance.
