Hole size 1mm. Approximately 19 beads in 7.5" strand
Tiger Eye is a variety of quartz which is chatoyant, or shows a silky directional sheen, because of parallel mineral fiber inclusions in the brown-toned quartz. These large 10mm round beads show off a wide range of Tiger-Eye's typical satin shimmer and banded patterns. This material is mined in North America and finished in China. As in most semiprecious gemstones, colors, bead sizes, and shapes can vary slightly due to differences in natural material, manufacturing, and cutting methods.
Metaphysically, Tiger Eye is considered to enhance wealth, vitality, and alertness.
