Hematite is the alteration product of many Fe-bearing minerals, especially, magnetite, siderite, and pyrite, and is precipitated in seas and lakes by chemical or organic processes. Its occurrence may be attributed, but not limited, to intense weathering under normal and oxidizing environments. Sedimentary deposits of hematite may be extensive and constitute major ores of iron.
No other stone evokes a big cat peering through the trees quite like Tiger Eye. Also known as Tiger’s Eye stone, our Tiger Eye gemstone beads display lustrous, chatoyant stripes of brown and golden yellow. These beautiful stripes shimmer and change in different lighting conditions. This gives tiger eye beads such beautiful vibrancy and movement!
Reminder: These beads are made of natural materials; the color and pattern may vary from the one shown in the picture. due to lighting effects, display brightness/contrast settings, etc., the color tone of the picture and the actual object may be slightly different.
