Lion Skin Quartz is a mixture of golden Tigereye, which is a microcrystalline quartz (or in the chalcedony family), with a macrocrystalline quartz. Which makes for a beautiful golden yellow chatoyant semiprecious gemstone material that has a more 3 dimensional look and some translucent areas!
Contrary to popular opinion-this material is similar BUT NOT Nellite (Pietersite and Tigereye combination) from China, as it has more white and does not have the trademark blue.
Lion Skin Quartz is found in Namibia.
Tiger-eye is said to enhance integrity, willpower, practicality and correct use of power. It is believed to be a stone that brings good luck, and prosperity. Quartz is believed to help one with zest for life, happiness and adventure. Combined Lion Skin Quartz is believed to promote a general well-being!!
