Pietersite Slab

 The trade name of pietersiteis used for a fractured or brecciated chalcedony containing amphibole fibers and promoted as tiger's eye from Namibia and China.

Tiger's eye (also called tiger eye) is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock with a golden to red-brown colour and a silky lustre. As members of the quartz group, Tiger's eye and the related blue-coloured mineral Hawk's eye gain their silky, lustrous appearance from the parallel intergrowth of quartz crystals and altered amphibole fibres that have mostly turned into limonite.

Includes custom brass stand.
