Other Descriptions: Tiger’s Eye is formed when Quartz replaces the mineral Crocidolite (blue asbestos). As the Crocidolite decomposes, Iron is exposed and oxidised which transforms it into Limonite. Tiger’s Eye is essentially Limonite fibres embedded in Clear Quartz. Gold Tiger’s Eye is heated, either by natural causes or artificially and the stone’s colour may become red, at which point it is called Red Tiger’s Eye.
