    Thank you!

    Yes it is tiger-eye, this is blue/gold variegated tiger eye with very little blue. I buy a lot of nice rough blue/gold pieces from a guy who has mining rights to an area in South Africa.

    I spent a few years in Afghanistan and was lucky enough to pick up a few really nice pieces of Lapis, Jade, and Tiger-eye. Costs next to nothing over there but beautiful pieces.

    Cool! Any plans on working them (cutting, cabbing, wrapping, tumbling, polishing)?

    They already were when I got them. Nothing super fancy, a few spheres that I thought were fake at first until the guy showed me one he was working on. My wife put them up on our mantle and they've made a great conversation piece.

    Neat! I always thought the sphere making process was fun to watch...Too labor intensive for me though!
