Gemstone: Tiger’s Eye

Another gemstone that fascinated me when I was a child was the tiger’s eye. I believe my first tiger’s eye was on a small sample card of gemstones that was given to me by my grandfather when he’d returned from visiting Nevada. It was the one stone that I watched changed in the light like a hologram when moving the card around. The chatoyancy of the tiger’s eye is a result of microcrystal fibers within quartz.

Today, the tiger’s eye is still one of my favorite stones. Besides being beautiful, it is said to be a grounding stone to help with stability and helps to balance physical and emotional energies, as well as helping to improve insight and self-confidence. Sometimes tiger’s eye is worn for good luck and protection.

  1. It’s really beautiful. Does Tiger’s Eye work for any person? Maybe a certain sign of the zodiac?

      It’s suggested that if we’re attracted to certain stones, to test out different ones by holding them. If we feel their “vibration” than that’s the right stone. I have read that Tiger’s Eye is for any sign of the zodiac.
