    Tiger's eye

    Back

    Tiger’s eye is a chatoyant gemstone. Its iridescent silky luster is caused by the reflection of light within the material’s thin fibrous bands. A member of the quartz group of chalcedonies, tiger’s eye typically displays glossy alternating bands of yellow and brown, which resemble the eye of a tiger.

    Van Cleef & Arpels rigorously selects stones with harmoniously alternating light and dark colors from Australia and South Africa. Their fibers must be regular, without black dots or wavy areas.

    Tiger’s eye is said to be beneficial for health and spiritual well-being.
