Tiger iron (also referred to as tiger jasper, tigereye matrix and mugglestone) is a banded ironstone rock composed of multiple layers of golden tiger eye, red jasper and hematite, a form of iron oxide. Some may contain higher levels of iron and others have higher amounts of jasper. This fascinating stone was created through a sedimentary process where the alternating layers of material formed over thousands of years.
