Blue Tiger's Eye has a trigonal crystal system, is formed in a tertiary manner and is in the mineral class of oxide, the Quartz group. The silky sheen and beautiful shimmers seen in this stone are created during its formation process.
With Quartz as its base, Crodicolite (asbestos) is trapped within the crystal. The fibers are generally twisted or crumpled which accounts for the various patterns. The amount of oxidation that occurs during its formation determines the coloring. In the blue shades, very little oxidation has occurred and the natural blue coloring of the Crodicolite prevails.
