Tiger’s Eye is a golden, brown crystal with a “chatoyancy” or “cats-eye” effect created by optical reflection. Golden tigers eye is natural whereas red tigers eye has had a gentle heat treatment. The banding in tigers eye comes from the compact layers of Amphibole fibres which over time have become shiny golden limonite, an iron ore mineral within the Quartz structure.
Tiger’s Eye has been used since Roman times as a talisman of protection to ward off curses and the “evil eye.” Its golden hues radiate strong and bold masculine energy which is extremely balancing, promoting harmony in the bearer. Known to represent honour and integrity this crystal helps you release your fears and find your courage. Through its ancient wisdom, it radiates optimism and self-confidence, aiding in motivating even the most sloth-like person. Its golden solar energy ramps up desires and revives flagging libidos. Used as a meditation stone it connects to the Solar Plexus Chakra opening up your personal power to become the warrior you were meant to be.
