Tiger Eye Collection
Craving the protection and strength of Tiger Eye? Add this mesmerizing gemstone to your design toolbox and collections. Tiger Eye gemstones have been desired over many centuries for their unique striped bands of color similar to the stripes of tigers. Tiger Eye is considered a protective stone and traditionally carried as a talisman to ward off curses or ill wishes. It is associated with goal accomplishment, discernment, vitality, strength, solar plexus and root chakras.
Historically, Tiger Eye was worn or carried as carved stones, beads, amulets, talismans, or jewelry by ancient Romans for protection and dominance in war. Other cultures called this stone ‘”Falcon’s Eye” or “Wolf’s Eye” or “Hyenis” (African hyena eyes) drawing on the astute and power of these animals.
Tiger Eye (Tiger’s eye) is a variety of quartz (macrocrystalline) commonly stained by iron resulting in golden brown coloration. Unlike other quartz varieties, when polished this gemstone displays an iridescent “cat’s-eye” effect (chatoyancy). You can find Tiger Eye in Australia, Brazil, Burman, China, India, Korea, Namibia, South Africa, Spain, and the United States.
