Tiger eye was discovered in the 1800's in South Africa. People first thought it was a rare stone so it was sold as a semi-precious stone and it was very expensive. But other mines were discovered, first in Western Africa. At the beginning of 1900, tiger eye became a cheaper stone.
Silver was first found in large amounts around 5000 BC, when prehistoric people dug the first copper mines. ... Large-scale silver mining had developed in Anatolia by 3000 BC. This was to meet the demand from the first ancient city states, which used the metal as a common medium of exchange.
Originating in ancient India and the Far East, the poison ring eventually made its way to Europe. The traditional poison ring had a very small container hidden under a hinged cover. Ancient Romans sometimes used poison rings to commit suicide when a painful death was unavoidable.
