The tiger's eye owes its name to its cat-eye effect. When the stone is processed into a cabochon cut, a light reflection is created, which strongly resembles the eye of a tiger.
The tiger's eye is formed from the falcon eye, a microcrystalline striped subspecies of the quartz in blue-grey to blue-green color, which has a strip-shaped surface iridescent. The name Falkenauge is derived from the fact that it is reminiscent of the eye of birds of prey.
The tiger's eye is characterized by its warm, golden-yellow and golden-brown shades.
In order to emphasize the special cat eye effect, the tiger eye is usually processed into a cabochon cut.
