Tiger Eye (also called Tiger’s Eye) is a semi-precious gemstone from the quartz family. It is easily spotted by it’s luminescent band that resembles a cat’s eye (or tiger in this case!!)
Mostly you see these in brown tones, but they can also be seen in red tones or yellow tones… all with the tell-tale band.
I love working with this gemstone. The brilliant ‘band’ seems to move about as you gaze at the gem. Since there are so many brown and gold tones in tiger’s eye, it blends so well with silver metals and sparkly champagne colored CZ’s. This unique gemstone ring I wear shows you what I mean!
The Tiger Eye was traditionally carried as a talisman to ward against ill wishes and curses. It is considered a balancing stone, reeling us in when we want to go to extremes. This gemstone has high energy so wear it when you want to increase your vitality and strength.
Legend says that tiger’s eye helps us be more creative. (cool!)
The Solar Plexus is the corresponding Chakra for Tiger’s Eye.
