Single Flared Red Tigers Eye Plugs
Red Tigers Eye stone Plugs
Red Tigers eye is a striking gemstone that is a perfect example of chatoyancy- an optical effect seen in many gemstones similar to the effect of silk. A luminous streak of light parallel to the fibers in the stone, that gives it a glowing cats eye effect. Red Tigers Eye has a range of browns, tans, golds, reds, coppers, and mahogany, and sometimes bands of silvery iron in the highlight. The full effect of the chatoyancy can really be seen when worn, as the light plays across the face of the stone. In some parts of the world, tigers eye is believe to ward off evil spirits, and was traditionally used in body jewelry.
Our Single Flare stone plugs are made with large front flares for security but also give the added aesthetic of looking larger overall. Each single flare plug has a convex front which contributes to that same desires look. The backs of our plugs have a long wearable, ranging from 13-16mm to accommodate all ears. They also have a gentle, rounded shape ideal for ease of insertion. Our plugs do not have an O-ring groove, as we suggest wearing an O-ring one to two sizes below for security. All our stones can be cared for by washing gently with warm soapy water, with a mild soap free from dyes, fragrances and other harsh additives. One that that is important to remember is that stone is a natural material, and so our plugs can sometimes vary +/- .5mm. Pattern, banding, and inclusion may vary from pair to pair as well.
