From the International Coloured Gemstone Association:
Tiger eye is a popular and curious gemstone.
Tiger’s eye quartz contains brown iron which produces its golden yellow colour. Cabochon cut stones of this variety show the chatoyancy (small ray of light on the surface) that resembles the feline eye of a tiger. The light reflected from the fibres produces a strong sheen or silky appearance – with the variation in colour density sometimes producing a ‘tiger-eye’ effect – hence the name. Since the tiger symbolises strength, power, determination, and the ability to survive, the tiger’s eye gemstone is believed to hold similar symbolism and powers. When carried as a piece of talisman jewellery, it is thought to be a protection gem stone.
The most important deposit is in South Africa, though tiger’s eye is also found in Western Australia, Burma (Myanmar), India and California.
