  ***UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS ONE 4.5" x 3.5" x 1"mm (approx.) IMMACULATE TOP END SOUTH AFRICAN GOLDEN TIGER EYE GEM ROUGH , AAA++ - "N", 368g***

Here is a spectacular natural top untreated South African Golden Tiger Eye rough mined west of Griquatown, South Africa. -- **THIS MATERIAL WAS PAINSTAKENLY ACQUIRED IN 1997 IN GRIQUATOWN, SOUTH AFRICA. IT CAN BE VERY DIFFICULT AND AT TIMES SEEMINGLY IMPOSSIBLE TO EXPORT ROUGH MATERIAL OUT OF SOUTH AFRICA** -- Tiger eye has a fibrous structure and in the lapidary shop must be oriented properly to get the chatoyance and/or the "cats eye" effect. Cuts must be exactly parallel to the length of the fibers to get the full chatoyance. If the saw cut is perpendicular, or 90% off the fibers, you end up with a lifeless, dark brown to black stone with no chatoyance or light play at all. Orientation of cutting is critical to getting good chatoyance and color out of tiger eye. We are talking a absolutely gorgeous top end gem rough here my fellow members, and will either cut some top end cabochons or a top end carving(s) like some we have up for auction! This top gem rough has a remarkable color & luster, excellent face up appearance and a very gemmy eye appeal! All our Tiger Eye cut stones and gem carvings are cut from this same exact material. Just phenomenal!

Happy shopping! We are not new in the gem trade or auctioneering. We offer all natural gemstones, gem carvings, & facet/cab/specimen grade gem rough, with full disclosure of any enhancements known. We also offer excellent service in all aspects, secure packaging, and fast shipping. You will not be disappointed with this very fine gem!! Please realize that colors can slightly differ from monitor to monitor or with change of lighting (natural, fluorescent, full spectrum, or incandescent).

***IF YOU WANT YOUR ORDER INSURED, PLEASE REQUEST THIS BEFORE INVOICING SO IT CAN BE ADDED ACCORDINGLY TOWARD THE INVOICE TOTAL BEFORE YOUR PAYMENT IS SENT (SEE BELOW)***
