Marra Mamba Designer Cut Cabochon

I cut this cab by hand and it's been highly polished both front and back with slightly beveled bottom edges for easy setting.
Unique in all the world and considered the King of tiger eye by most collectors and lapidarists, Marra Mamba Tiger Eye is a true rarity and high collectible form of tiger eye from the Pilbara region of Australia. Although there still exists a good deal of golden and red tiger eye coming out of the area, the deposits of true Marra Mamba, only two of them in a ridge of hills miles long, has been mined out for about 20 years now.
Marra Mamba Tiger Eye is highly coveted not only for its flashy rolling chatoyance, but for the myriad of colors in reds, yellow gold, blues and greens! Metallic hematite inclusions also can be found in much of this material, often in patterns resembling landscapes or tracks.
