Sheila's personal experience with Hawks Eye
The raw piece of Hawks Eye mixed with Tigers Eye is one of my favorites. I already love raw pieces, so having this piece with both tones of the stone, is a prized possession. You can clearly see the chatoyancy and the line where the iron inclusions end and the Hawks Eye begins.
Lisa's personal experience with Hawks Eye
I am always on the lookout for rare Hawks Eye. Sometimes when I am carefully inspecting Tigers Eye spheres to find the best quality pieces for Satin Crystals, I run into a Hawks Eye ball that just takes my breath away. I love the dark and mysterious draw of this stone. They are rare and sell out every time.
When I wear a Hawks Eye bracelet, I feel strong and protected. It's as though my Hawk spirit animal is perched right there on my arm, watching over every movement with keen and vigilant eyes. It gives me a boost of confidence to get out and explore the wonders of the world.
