Tiger's eye is an opaque stone that can be yellow to brown. It features a narrow gleam of light down the center that appears to move vertically along its surface as the light sources move. The unique appearance of tiger's eye is caused by fibrous inclusions. Light is refracted off of these inclusions giving tiger's eye its chatoyancy (changeable luster). Hawk's Eye is similar to Tiger's Eye but instead has a gray blue or green hue due to the presence of crocidolite when the stone was created.

Color Yellow to yellow-orange to brown
Description A type of quartz. Mohs' hardness rating of 7.0.
