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).
Rabbit (Hare) represents longevity, discretion and good luck. It has the fourth position in the Chinese Zodiac.

They dislike fighting and like to find solutions through compromise and negotiation. The Rabbit is said to be the most elegant and gentle animal among Chinese Zodiac signs .Chinese legend says that the moon goddess had a rabbit as a pet, with the thought that only this creature was amiable enough to match her noble beauty.
