This is another one of a collection of precious and semiprecious stone carvings we recently purchased from a retired professor of gemology. It was his personal collection and each one is the best of the best.. This one is a beautiful tiger's eye with very unusual patterns of gold and darker brown. It is even more beautiful in hand. Photos do not do this piece justice.
The Tiger’s Eye crystal properties are said to encourage you to live boldly, fiercely and bravely in all aspects of your life. (Thanks to China Highlights).
