Tigers eye is a member of the quartz group and a pseudomorph of asbestos.
Colour: Brassy yellow, golden brown. Typically opaque or translucent in thin slices. The rich golden colour is caused by oxidation of the asbestos prior to silicification.
Common geological occurrences: India, Australia.
Crystallography: A pseudomorph refers to a substitution from one mineral to another whilst retaining the original appearance and dimensions. In the case of crocidolite, a form of asbestos, quartz has replaced the fibrous mineral retaining its dense fibrous structure. When cut parallel to the fibres, tigers eye can show a sheen known as chatoyancy or cat’s eye that is a result of light reflecting off the silky inclusions.
All crystals possess different physical qualities that can make them brittle, delicate or unstable. Take time to read and understand the best way to store, clean and use your crystal.
CARE NOTE: Tiger eye is generally a tough stone but its surface may scratch and abrade over time.

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.
Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators.
The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing.
Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.
We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
