Hawks eye is a blue-gray to blue-green opaque gemstone variety of fibrous quartz. More specifically, it is a variety of macrocrystalline quartz. Hawks eye is actually a pseudomorph of quartz.
Hawks eye is famed for its chatoyancy, reminiscent of the 'eye of a hawk'. It is closely related to tigers eye and pietersite, both of which exhibit similar chatoyancy. Tigers eye is actually formed from hawks eye.
