Description

Tigereye Beads come in richly chatoyant browns and yellows with a golden luster. While legends exist of Roman soldiers wearing this "all seeing" stone for protection in battle, tigereye was not considered a semiprecious gemstone until the late 19th century. Today, tigereye beads are some of our gemstone best sellers!
The stone is also known as African cat's eye, crocidolite, and tiger's eye, and was once even called griqualandite, named after Griqualand West in Africa, where the finest examples of the stone were mined.
Protect tigereye jewelry components from scratches, sharp blows, and large temperature changes. Because of their chatoyance, tigereye beads and pendants should not be cleaned with alcohol or abrasives. It can be helpful to treat the stone with oils like Goo Gone.
