The Tiger Eye gemstone derives its name from its close resemblance with the eyes of the tiger and cat.

Typically, the stone is available in shades of golden brown to yellow-brown with one or multiple bands of colour passing through it. 

The cost of the stone depends on its transparency as well as the number of bands running through it.

Stones that have three bands running through them are costlier than those having a single band.

The answer is the tiger eye is a crystal as it contains quartz crystal as well.
