Tiger Eye Slabs Page 2
Marra Mamba Tiger Eye
Marra Mamba Tiger Eye was mined out years ago, in the 1970's. It is the
most sought after form of tiger eye because of its mix of highly chatoyant
tiger eye, (which can be golden, bluish, greenish or reddish), hematite
and jasper. Finished stones are very popular. These slabs were cut many
years ago and were recently brought out of our "archives".
Tiger Eye has long been considered a quartz replacement of asbestos, otherwise
known as a pseudomorph. The asbestos is gone, so it's harmless to cut. However,
new research into the origins of tiger eye shows tiger eye is actually not
a pseudomorph. The fibrous structure of tiger eye creates chatoyance and
also gives it a definite grain structure. So, you have to be careful that
it doesn't tear out when grinding and polishing. Polish with cerium
oxide, tin oxide, or diamond.
