BLACK TIGER EYE
Made using slices of Black colored Tiger eye semi precious stones. The slices are finely laid out next to each other and then pasted on to another solid surface to craft bigger slab.
Currently the factory is capable of making slab as big as 10 Ft Long X 6 Ft Wide or 3.0 mts Long X 1.8 mts Wide in various thickness standard thickness being 2 cm.
The slabs are popularly used as counter tops, dining table tops, table and end stool tops, and also looks amazing when used as wall cladding, but basically everywhere granite or marble slab can find usage. We also use this as a surface to create custom furniture pieces. Feel free to ask our team to build something as per your specification.
Tiger’s eye (also called Tigers eye or Tiger eye) is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock that is a golden to red-brown colour, with a silky luster. A member of the quartz group, it is a classic example of pseudomorphous replacement by silica of fibrous crocidolite (blue asbestos). An incompletely silicified blue variant is known as Hawk’s eye.
The gems are usually cut en cabochon in order to best display their chatoyancy. Red stones are brought about through gentle heat treatment. Dark stones have had their colours improved and been artificially lightened using nitric acid treatments.
Honey-colored stones have been used to imitate the much higher valued cat’s eyechrysoberyl (cymophane), but the overall effect is unconvincing. Artificial fibre optic glass is a common imitation of tiger’s eye, and is produced in a wide range of colours. Tiger’s Eye comes primarily from South Africa and east Asia.
