Marra Mamba Tiger Eye: This mineral specimen is an example of one of Australia's greatest natural treasures. The stone displays a myriad of gold, red and green jasper along with rivers of hematite meandering throughout. Setting the entire theme are the bands of chatoyant tiger eye in colors of red, gold and green, which capture the light and bounce it playfully from side to side. Only one place in the world boasts of this extraordinary treasure, a small vein of material in Western Australia. Of all the varied specimens we feature in these Stone Creations, Marra Mamba Tiger Eye is our favorite.
