Tiger eye is quartz that contains oriented fibers of crocidolite that have been replaced by silica. Tiger eye displays chatoyancy (a vertical luminescent band like that of a cat's eye). Tiger eye typically has lustrous alternating yellow or brown bands. The history of this gemstone includes the fact that roman soldiers wore tiger's-eye for protection in battle due to its seemingly all seeing powers. Also, it is believed that tiger eye can relieve high blood pressure, and is overall beneficial for the weak and the sick. The most important mine for Tiger Eye is in South Africa and the best stones come from Griqualand West.
