Tiger eye is a golden-brown, chatoyant, siliceous fibre vein, rich in quartz and iron oxides, usually with some riebeckite.  A recent theory suggests the veins formed as fibrous quartz crystals with interspersed hematite and riebeckite fibres, growing rapidly from the surrounding rocks during low grade metamorphism.
