Nellite is a massive silicate that forms where tiger eye and pietersite meet: it's like a blend of both. Nellite has the golden, translucent glow of tiger eye in quartz, as well as the blue crocidolite of pietersite, which is sometimes present by itself and sometimes silicifed or partially silicified, and mixes randomly with the golden-colored quartz. Polishing with the grain brings out the chatoyancy
