DescriptionVery Large Tiger's Eye Sphere
Mt. Brockman Station
This huge sphere measures close to 11 inches (28 cm) in diameter and weighs a colossal 68 pounds (31 kg)! Truly something to regard, the original rough rock was likely as much as three times larger to yield this amazing piece of geological art. It was expertly worked by a master lapidary and features amazing gold chatoyant banding contrasted against rich red Hematite and black bands of Magnetite - the characteristic components and colors of classic Tiger's Eye from Australia. The giant sphere exhibits bold areas of green Riebeckite and Goethite, mixed together with accents of pure yellow Goethite over the smooth surface. Finished to an incredible polish, this rounded monolith is in pristine condition and a true, albeit massive, treasure from Down Under.
Overall Measurements: 10.8 inches (27.43 cm) in diameter, 68 lbs. (30.84 kg.)
