Tiger eye or Tiger's eye is from South Africa and comes in the natural golden color and blue or a mixture of the two(Variegated). This is the red version that is not natural. Lets put it this way, you can heat the Golden Tiger eye in an oven and it will turn red so probably 99% or more of the red tiger eye on the market is heated in an oven. Natural Red Tiger eye would have been in a Forrest or brush fire when it turned red. I'd say this slab is not naturally red but the beauty is the same. Tiger eye is a chatoyant stone that is usually a metamorphic rock with a golden to red-brown color and soft flashing tone. A member of the quartz group, red tiger's eye and the blue hawk's eye gain their glowing appearance from the parallel inter growth of quartz crystals and altered amphibole fibres.-WET pic.-(4"x 2"/2.2 oz/5mm thick) no fractures
