Falcon's Eye Semi Precious Stone Box with Hinged Lid

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.
