Golden Tiger Eye and 'Dzi' Agate Long NecklaceGolden Tiger Eye and 'Dzi' Agate Long NecklaceGolden Tiger Eye and 'Dzi' Agate Long NecklaceGolden Tiger Eye and 'Dzi' Agate Long NecklaceGolden Tiger Eye and 'Dzi' Agate Long Necklace

This necklace is made from gorgeous golden yellow faceted and smooth barrel-shaped golden brown Tiger's Eye beads. In the midst of these beads you will find barrel-shaped Agate beads that have been dyed and treated with eye-catching white 'Dzi' patterns. I have used gold-plated Pyrite beads as spacers to highlight and separate the gemstone beads. This is a long necklace with no clasp, made to be worn as a single strand. OOAK!

Tiger Eye is an iron bearing Quartz. The quartz is in a fibrous formation creating parallel lines within the gemstone. Light shining on the stone seems to move across the surface of the stone, a phenomenon known as 'Chatoyancy' coming from the French word for cat. The pictures do not capture this wonderful display but it is characteristic of this gemstone. The stone was thought in ancient times to bring good fortune and protection from the 'Evil Eye'. Roman soldiers were known to wear Tiger Eye to battle for protection. It is the gemstone for the 9th wedding anniversary. The presence of Iron Oxide determines the intensity of the golden color of the Tiger Eye.

What is a 'Dzi' Agate bead? The original authentic Dzi beads are from India, Nepal or Tibet and were Agate beads with markings often resembling eyes. They were/are considered sacred amulets and these antique beads highly valuable today. Modern day ‘Dzi’ Agate beads are etched and colored to resemble these beads.

Length: 29 inches.

Beading Wire: 0.19"/49 strand clear-coated stainless steel professional quality beading wire with 14K gold-filled crimps, crimp covers and wire guards.

Bead size: 8 x 9 mm barrels; 10 mm star-faceted Tiger Eye beads; 10 x 14 mm and 10 x 30 mm Agate Dzi beads.
