DescriptionTiger Iron Slab
Without a doubt, this free-form Tiger Iron slab, from mysterious Australia, is a fantastic interior design element. It can bring line, color and pattern into any space. This mesmerizing material was created over 2 billion years ago and has been cut and polished to exhibit hundreds of multi-colored lines. These swirling lines were created from both black and blood red Hematite, yellow Goethite and bursts of chatoyant Tiger's Eye. Hematite provides the overall gray metallic banding seen when viewed at an angle, creating a large amount of visible metallic luster across the entire piece. The naturally cut shape somewhat resembles an arrow head; however, the shape is truly in the eye of the beholder. This interesting decorative slab is in pristine condition.
