Small particles of iron oxides are stored within the microcrystals, which generate the shine and orange effects that characterize this stone. This type of quartz has vertical bands that represent a similarity to the eye of the feline that gives it its name, which are the result of an effect produced by the orientation of the fibrous inclusions that the mineral contains.
