Extra large oval shaped chatoyant Arizona Pietersite or Arizona Tiger-eye collector designer cabochon 79 mm (more than 3 inches) by 42 mm (more than 1.5 inches) and 7 mm thick.
This large stone cabochon is green with gold flash and it is backed with a thin layer of black agate for stability.
This stone material is known as "Arizona Pietersite" because of its superb chatoyant cat's eye effect. It has also been called Arizona Tiger-eye. Cabochons cut from this material seem to glow with their own internal light.
This cabochon material is not the same as the original Pietersite found in Africa, or the different material also known as Pietersite found in China. This gemstone material is actually Serpentine and comes in several varieties-from gold to root beer to silver flash, and from green to brown Serpentine.
Metaphysical Properties: Serpentine is said to sooth emotions and helps one overcome fear of change and to look to the future with anticipation.
