Rocko tumbled these semiprecious stones in his National Geographic tumbler and is now selling them to you. The price is for one stone, about 0.5"-1" for medium or 1"-2" in size on its longest axis. Each one is different.

Wikipedia says: "Tiger's eye (also called tiger eye) is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock with a golden to red-brown colour and a silky lustre. As members of the quartz group, tiger's eye and the related blue-coloured mineral hawk's eye gain their silky, lustrous appearance from the parallel intergrowth of quartz crystals and altered amphibole fibres that have mostly turned into limonite." More details to come.

Rocko decided to sell some of his tumbled stones that we purchased as rough from National Geographic. He plans to use the money for savings, for his and Joy's college funds, and for books from his school's book fair (we save money for this from recycling as well).
