Is a gemstone with an amazing optical reflectance effect called “Cat’s Eye Effect”, is a golden to brown color, with a silky luster. It’s a variety of chalcedony, a type of quartz.It’s a pseudomorphous replacement by silica of fibrous crocidolite (fibrous riebeckite, a blue asbestos). We have a Hawk’s Eye (An incompletely silicified blue variant), the second and third picture we have a polished shiny Tiger’s Eye (cabochon shape) and in the last photos, an Unpolished TIger’s Eye. The central picture portrays the “family of Eye”. In the past, thieves used this stone amulet for good luck in the game, also the Romans therefore been an eternal source of good luck.
