Tiger eye is a form of quartz family stone that is both metaphoric and a pseudomorph. It starts life as asbestos or crocidolite and then becomes indurated or soaked with quartz laden fluids, capturing the asbestos in a quartz shell.
The asbestos gives tigers eye its cool effects and the quartz its hardness making it a great choice for jewelry.
Back in the 1870's a carat of tigers was worth half an ounce of gold. Today that number is dirt cheap because we have found large sources of the stone.
