The gemstone known as tiger's eye is a form of chalcedony quartz. But it didn't start out as quartz. It began as the fibrous blue mineral called crocidolite, which is made up of iron and sodium. Tiger eye with its bands resembles an eye of tiger, so it is received its name due to this similarity. Tiger's eye was first discovered in South Africa in the early 1800's. Roman soldiers wore tiger's-eye for protection in battle. Tiger Eye was thought to be all seeing due to its appearance.
