Golden Tiger Eye is a classic form of Tiger-eye that has a flashy chatoyant characteristic. This quickly led to world famous popularity! It takes a great polish and works into some pretty amazing cabochons. When it is wet and moved slowly, it will give an optical effect inside. This effect is also enhanced when the stone is cut and polished. Tiger Eye is becoming harder and harder to find, especially good quality material!
Golden Tiger's Eye can also be tumbled with great results! This tends to let more light in so you can see the flash better, and it also takes a good polish to add attractiveness! It does take some special care though, but it is 100% possible to get great results! We recommend doing the start of the polish with a rotary tumbler, and finishing with a vibra-tumbler, but great results are possible with just a rotary tumbler.
Photos are taken with the stones wet. This helps you see their potential once polished.
As of right now the majority of our stock is trimmer rough sized.

These stones are intended for lapidary uses. These are completely unpolished. If you are looking for tumbled tiger's eye or polished specimens, view our other listings as we might have some available.
