Tiger Eye Gemstone: Legends and Facts

Tiger Eye Earrings

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.

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 stone has high energy so wear it when you want to increase your vitality and strength. The Solar Plexus is the corresponding Chakra for Tiger Eye.
