Jinx, our lovable 20 lb Maine Coon, makes Tiger's Eye even more special to us! With the bravery of a tiger, he prowls our backyard, yet in our arms, he's as gentle as a lamb.
Tiger’s Eye, with its captivating chatoyant effect, has a history steeped in mystery. While ancient civilizations like the Egyptians, Assyrians, Romans, and Chinese are said to have revered it, historical evidence is scant. Modern discoveries trace back to South Africa, where French explorer Francois Levaillant marveled at an extraordinary stone in the 18th century. Today, Tiger’s Eye, named for its resemblance to a tiger’s eye, reflects light in a unique way, honoring the power of this magnificent feline. Despite its beauty, real tigers face extinction, with efforts underway to reintroduce them into their native habitats, a poignant reminder of the delicate balance of our natural world.

Tiger's Eye is a distinctive semi-precious Quartz variety formed when Quartz layers develop over crocidolite, a fibrous mineral. During this process, iron from crocidolite dissolves, staining the Quartz and giving it the characteristic golden and brown colors. Tiger's Eye belongs to the Silicate mineral group, characterized by Silicon and Oxygen tetrahedra arrangements. These tetrahedra join to create various minerals, and Tiger's Eye is a unique product of this geological composition.
Tiger's Eye primarily originates from South Africa, with smaller deposits in Brazil and India, and sporadic discoveries in other regions.
