Tiger’s Eye Properties

Tiger’s Eye is a black and gold crystal with a shimmering, chatoyant effect.  This chatoyancy (shimmer) effect in Tiger’s Eye comes from asbestos that has been replaced by Quartz over the crystal’s lifetime.

It is another crystal that has been prized by ancient civilizations for centuries.

The Egyptians believed it symbolized the divine vision, and gave statues of their gods eyes made of Tiger’s Eye.  it was believed to combine the power of their sun god, Ra, and their Earth god, Geb.

The Romans also loved Tiger’s Eye, and they carried it into battle with them for courage and to deflect weapons.

The Chinese believed Tiger’s Eye could restore the balance between the Yin and Yang energies, and they linked it with their sacred animal, the Tiger.
