Tiger’s-Eye Quartz is a transparent colorless quartz containing closely packed, parallel fibers of crocidolite asbestos, but experiences iron oxidation during formation. This iron oxide content gives Tiger’s-Eye its golden-brown to reddish-brown color. The more heat Tiger's-Eye experiences, the more red the color.  It is unknown whether this material was heated by the Earth or man-made process.
