An antique tiger’s eye quartz egg with bold chatoyance or cat’s eye effect is mounted in gold. Marked on suspension ring with 56 zolotnik Imperial gold standard (14K).
In antiquity, the Tiger’s Eye was considered the “all-seeing, all-knowing eye.” Supposedly, the gem grants the wearer the ability to observe everything, even through closed doors.
