Comment: A well-known gem-variety, but so far underrepresented in our inventory. Now, newly on offer as a budget gem for the cost- AND quality-conscious buyer. This first tiger's eye of 2.60 carat and 9mm round stands out with a Z-shaped ray, as opposed to the common single centered ray. Other than in classic transparent cat's eyes, the ray of a tiger's eye does not move through the complete body but rather sways with the light source and is more surface bound. Similar to agate (also a quartz) it is found in mild, dark earthy colors, golden-brown, ochre, golden-green, and yellow, with the ray usually showing the brightest tone in the center, here in gold. Though it feels soft to the touch, almost organic, it comes with a seven on moh's scale and is durable enough for jewelry treated with normal care. See under 'more images' how the ray widens with light falling in sideways, and also the parallel color stripes on the backside. Under the lens you may study the beautiful inner structure, thin golden fibers in thick colored bundles, always moving and flowing as if alive.
