At Shane Co. we make the most of Tiger's Eye's silky luster, warm and sultry shades of honey, and earthy red-brown tones to produce fun, flirty and fresh looks that complement any outfit. Like all Shane Co. jewelry, our Tiger's Eye jewelry is made with natural gemstones in their natural colors.
Tiger's Eye is a member of the quartz chalcedony group of minerals. The mineral's exotic name comes from its chatoyant nature, meaning a gemstone's ability to have a changeable luster when caught in the light, which has the resemblance of a cat's eye. The effect is enhanced and more noticeable when the gemstone is shaped and polished (rounded) instead of being faceted. In folklore, Tiger's Eye is said to have mystical properties that protect the wearer from evil and illness.
Tiger's Eye is durable, registering 7.0 on the Mohs scale of hardness, so it can be worn daily with no concern. Tiger's Eye jewelry is easy to care for, requiring only warm soapy water to maintain its special beauty.
