Blue Tiger's Eye is also known as Hawk's Eye or Falcon's Eye.

1. Color: Blue Tiger's Eye typically exhibits shades of blue, ranging from a deep navy blue to lighter shades of blue-gray or blue-green. The blue coloration is caused by the presence of iron within the mineral.

2. Hardness: Blue Tiger's Eye has a hardness of around 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale. This level of hardness makes it moderately durable and suitable for use in jewelry.

3. Clarity: Blue Tiger's Eye often displays chatoyancy, also known as the "cat's-eye effect." This effect is caused by the reflection of light off parallel fibrous inclusions within the stone, which creates a band of light that moves across the surface when the stone is moved.

4. Luster: Blue Tiger's Eye has a silky to vitreous luster, depending on the quality of the stone and how it has been cut and polished. The chatoyant effect enhances its luster and gives it a unique appearance.

5. Density: The density of Blue Tiger's Eye typically ranges from 2.64 to 2.71 g/cm^3. This density is similar to that of other forms of Tiger's Eye and many other common gemstones.

6. Metaphysical Properties: Like other forms of Tiger's Eye, Blue Tiger's Eye is associated with protection. It is believed to ward off negative energies and promote a sense of safety and security. It is said to enhance mental clarity, focus, and insight. It can help individuals see situations more objectively and make decisions with confidence.
