Tigereye (also called "tiger's eye stone") is silicified crocidolite in quartz. When heat treated, tigereye acquires this deep rest color. According to metaphysical beliefs, general tigereye is an intense and protective stone. These red tigereye beads are given a matte finish rather than a traditional bright polish. This matte appearance offers a soft look for coordinating with other matte surfaces or creating visual interest when paired with shiny gemstones or metals.
