Tiger Eye Mineral & Gemstone Information
The optical property of tiger eye that gives it the shimmery effect is called chatoyancy, meaning “cat’s eye”. It arises due to the fibrous structure of the stone’s parallel layers. The effect shows up best when the stone is cut across the layers and polished in a rounded shape like a cabochon; faceting does not work as well.
