To try something a bit different than usual, this is Part I post of a two specimen post; check out Part II here. Tiger's Eye is a well known gemstone with its striped orange-yellow-brown-ish coloring and is apparently the 'planetary stone' for those born under Gemini and is apparently the gemstone for those celebrating their 9th anniversary. I'm generally not one to collect polished stones for the collection, the best pieces of geology are those found raw in their natural state. This is a very cool piece though, so I made an exception to get it.
