The exotic, honey-tinged colour is only one of the charms of Tiger eye. When cut in a cabochon shape, this unique gem flashes beams of light that resemble the eye of a jungle cat, displaying the optic phenomena called “chatoyancy.” Its golden warmth and rich luster are prized by those who seek the mysterious and unusual in their jewelry.
