There are a number of gemstones with striations in them, banded agates being among them. However the stone that often captures people's eye is tiger eye.

Kami used a long oval yellow tiger eye pendant on a simple bail and teemed it with amber chips. The latter certainly brightened up the creation. It is also the first time I am seeing this gemstone combination together. Great idea, Kami! She also used long stretches of black seed beads to make this creation suitable for those who like to wear black too.
