Description

Tiger Eye is a gemstone known for its distinctive golden to reddish-brown color and shimmering chatoyant effect. It belongs to the quartz mineral family and is formed through a process of pseudomorphism, where crocidolite, a blue asbestos mineral, is replaced by quartz. This replacement process results in the fibrous structure of crocidolite being preserved within the quartz, giving Tiger Eye its unique appearance.

Tiger Eye gets its name from its resemblance to the eye of a tiger or a cat. When light interacts with the fibrous structure of the stone, it creates a shifting band of light that moves across the surface, resembling the movement of a cat’s eye. This optical phenomenon is called chatoyancy.

The most common color of Tiger Eye is a golden brown, but it can also be found in shades of red, blue, and black. The stone is usually cut into cabochons to showcase its chatoyant effect.

Tiger Eye is believed to have various metaphysical properties and is associated with protection, courage, and confidence. It is thought to promote clarity of thought, enhance focus, and help in making decisions. Tiger Eye is also believed to bring balance and harmony to one’s life and is often used as a grounding stone.

In terms of its uses, Tiger Eye is primarily used in jewelry, such as rings, pendants, and bracelets. It is also used for decorative purposes and can be carved into sculptures or used as an ornamental stone. Additionally, Tiger Eye is sometimes used in alternative healing practices like crystal therapy and meditation.
