Tiger's eye is a type of amorphous macrocrystalline quartz. . Buffalo Eye may have quantities of iron or hematite moreso than tiger eye. Similar stones, semi precious.

Many thanks, Weasel. I couldn't find any information on Buffalo Eye. Although there are many sites where it is being sold, non, that I could find, give any information on the stone, including the one where I recently bought some small Buffalo Eye cabochons to use in my jewellery making hobby.
