About

Falcon's Eye Semi Precious Stone Box with Hinged Lid
Falcon's eye, AKA Blue Tiger's Eye, famed for its chatoyancy, is reminiscent of the 'eye of a hawk or falcon'. Tiger's eye is actually formed from falcon's eye. As blue crocidolite is dissolved by quartz, traces of iron oxide remain; less iron tends to result in the blue color of crocidolite and if more iron is present, color tends to result in the brownish golden color of tiger's eye.
