DescriptionTIGER'S EYE SLAB
Mount Brockman Station
Pilbara, Western Australia
9.92 x 8.66 x 0.37 inches (25.2 x 22 x 0.94 cm)
Often referred to as Marramamba Tiger's Eye, this incredibly old and extremely decorative metamorphic rock features a unique chatoyancy aspect resulting in a "Cat's Eye" effect which is an optical reflectance. This boot-shaped specimen has gold, red and black coloration with an excellent band across the middle featuring the chatoyant quality very well. This sizable piece has been polished to reveal the beauty and rich colors of the rock - felted on the back to prevent scratching any surface on which it may finally rest.
