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).
If you like tiger’s eye you will love Binghamite/Silkstone or Charoite.
