This is a gorgeous "Blue Flash" Tiger Eye cabochon, in the shape of an oval. It is an exceptional cabochon of variegated tigereye, cut from material which hails from Africa. This one has an amazing degree of chatoyant brilliance, with row upon row of strong shimmering flash in distinctive bluish-green and burnt gold with bright yellow. The silky gleam positively leaps right out at you as the stone moves. The silky, lustrous appearance comes from the parallel intergrowth of quartz crystals and altered fibres that have mostly turned into limonite. This one is polished to a glassy brilliance both front and back.
This one is good for those interested in collecting the many thousand forms of agate, jasper, or sometimes "other" minerals.
Although this is a cab, you can also glue on "bails", or have the piece drilled to accept a pinch bail. Either approach will let you turn this sample into a fine pendant.
