2" Polished Red Tiger's Eye Worry Stone

 
This is a 2" polished, red tiger's eye worry stone. The tiger's eye has been mined from the Northern Cape Province of South Africa.

Red Tiger's eye or Red Tiger Eye is a gorgeous, chatoyant gemstone with alternating banks of golden to red-brown color and a silky luster. It has a fascinating and constantly shifting light effect where the gold and brown bands appear to keep reversing as the stone is moved relative to the light source. Red tiger's eye has a lot more iron in it that regular tiger's eye leading to a deep red coloration.

Tiger's eye is actually a variety of quartz which is chatoyant because of subparallel intergrowth of quartz crystals and altered amphibole fibres that have turned into limonite. It's primarily used to ornamental and lapidary purposes. Primary sources of Tiger's Eye are South Africa, Australia and China.

They are may also be referred to as palm stones, thumb stone, fidget stones, etc.
