BLUE TIGERS EYE
Tiger’s Eye is formed when the Quartz takes over and dissolves the Crocodolite, leaving the Quartz in a finely fibrous and chatoyant form. When polished, it’s silky luster creates a beautiful chatoyant effect of moving layers of brown and yellow lines and waves. Blue Tiger Eye (also called Hawk’s Eye, Tiger’s Eye, Tigereye) is known for its soothing properties: it is believed to help reducing stress, increasing calm and easing anxiety.
Labradorite is a feldspar mineral that is most often found in rocks such as basalt, gabbro, and norite.
Some specimens of labradorite exhibit a schiller effect, which is a strong play of iridescent blue, green, red, orange, and yellow colors as shown in the photographs. Labradorite is so well known for these spectacular displays of color that the phenomenon is known as “labradorescence”
William Henry uses specimens with the highest quality labradorescence as gemstones in our collections of jewelry.
