Marra Mamba Tiger Eye Rough - $18.00/pound
Marra Mamba Tiger Eye was mined out 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). To top it off, Marra Mamba Tiger Eye often contains hematite and jasper. Finished stones are unusually beautiful and very popular. These pieces of Marra Mamba Tiger Eye were purchased many years ago and were recently brought out of our "archives".

We have two grades of Marra Mamba Tiger Eye:
#1 is the standard material we all know and love.
#2 is dark with a mysterious golden cat's eye and nice lines of hematite.

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. I prefer diamond with a quick final touch of Zam (green rouge) for polishing tiger eye. Mohs hardness 7.
