A beautiful custom cut teardrop focal bead! This beautiful and mysterious scenic stone is made out of premium South African tiger eye. I hand cut this piece which measures 42x27x8mm with a 2mm side drill hole. I used a silky polished finish with this piece that really allows this type of tiger eye to showcase it's natural silky luster and heightened chatoyancy. This bead has great chatoyancy running through multiple veins of tiger eye, mixed in with thick hematite veins.
